Two Shell oil workers who were kidnapped in Nigeria’s southern Niger Delta region last week have been rescued, a police spokesman and SPDC said.

The pair were attacked in southern Rivers state last week while returning from an official trip to Bayelsa state.

“The tactical team of the command rescued the victims in the early hours of Tuesday,” said Nnamdi Omoni a spokesman for Rivers state police force.

“They are well and being supported after their ordeal,” said SPDC spokesman Michael Adande.
