The Ebonyi Police Command has rescued the two kidnapped Chinese nationals who were abducted by unknown gunmen at a road construction site in Ohaozara Local Government Area of the state on Wednesday.
The victims, Messrs Sun Zhi Xim and Wang Qinghu, were employees of Tongyi Chinese Group of Companies.
ASP Loveth Odah, the State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), disclosed on Sunday that the victims were rescued inside a thick forest around the site.
“The persistent pressure mounted by the police on the kidnappers made them abandon the victims inside the bush.
“The victims have been re-united with their fellow Chinese nationals working in the company as efforts have been intensified to arrest the fleeing gunmen,” she said.
The PPRO said that the state Commissioner of Police had convened an interactive meeting with all Chinese and other expatriates working or residing in Ebonyi on the need to take security matters serious.
