The Ebonyi Police Command has rescued the two Chinese nationals who were abducted by gunmen at a road construction site in Ohaozara Local Government Area of the state on Wednesday.

The News Agency of Nigeria recalls that the victims, Messrs Sun Zhi Xim and Wang Qinghu, were employees of Tongyi Chinese Group of Companies.

The State Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Loveth Odah, told NAN 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.

She noted that the Police are ready to grant security requests whenever the expatriates apply for such.

“We are not aware of any ransom paid by the relatives of the victims and we solicit information from the public to apprehend the kidnappers,” she said.
