Less than 24 hours after three victims escaped, the remaining seven oil workers of the 14 kidnapped on September 2 along Omoku/Elele axis of Rivers State have been rescued by the State Police Command.

Confirming the rescue of the oil workers, spokesman for the police in the state, Nnamdi Omoni, in a statement said the police smashed the hoodlums in the early hours of Sunday and rescued the abducted.

According to him, no ransom was paid.

The victims are currently receiving medical attention at an undisclosed hospital.

By this rescue all 14 kidnapped oil workers are out of captivity.

The Police Command in the state, however, is still investigating the circumstances surrounding the kidnap.
