Sahara Reporters sought for an update on the kidnap saga and have some information  published in this regard. They mentioned that the Nigerian hostages were released including comrade Sunny Ofehe, while, the foreigners are still being held.


Suspected militants who abducted three Dutch nationals in Letugbene community in Bayelsa have freed the Nigerian hostages in their custody.
