Ebonyi: Kidnapped Chinese Nationals Regain Freedom

Two Chinese nationals, Sun Zhixin and Wang Quing Hu, who were kidnapped in a construction site in Ebonyi state on Wednesday have regained their freedom.

This was disclosed by Police spokesman in the State, Loveth Odah on Sunday that they were rescued by the police unhurt.

Odah said “They were rescued on Saturday by 11 am. The pressure was so much on the kidnappers that they had to abandon them and flee. They were rescued in a thick forest around the area unhurt. They were not physically tortured but they may be psychologically tortured”.

“The police in the state has invited the Foreign Nationals to a meeting to sensitize them on the need to liaise with the police to always provide them with adequate security”.

The two Chinese nationals were kidnapped while working on a road project in Ohaozara local government area of the State by masked armed gunmen.
