Five Indians abducted by pirates in Nigeria are safe: Sushma Swaraj

New Delhi: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Friday said all five Indian sailors have been abducted by pirates in Nigeria but are safe.

A day after Swaraj sought a report on the abduction of the Indian nationals, the minister said, "Our High Commissioner in Nigeria AR Ghanshyam met President of Nigeria on 12 December. He is making all efforts to secure their release."

 

"I have the report on abduction of five Indian sailors in Nigeria. The contact with pirates is established. Indian sailors are safe."

 

Yesterday, a request seeking help was made on Twitter about five Indian sailors being kidnapped in Warri, Nigeria on December 11 and that they are still not freed, to which Swaraj had tweeted that, "I have asked for a report on the abduction of 5 Indian sailors in Nigeria."
