Nigerian Kidnappers: Oil CEO's Wife Gets Off Easy

Nigerian kidnappers on Saturday released the wife of a senior oil executive who was taken hostage in its oil capital of Port Harcourt last month

Nigerian kidnappers on Saturday released the wife of a senior oil executive who was taken hostage in its oil capital of Port Harcourt last month.

Odichi Ugorji, spokesman for Lonestar Drilling, owned by the husband of Margret Idisi, who was abducted on April 19, told AFP the woman was released unhurt.

He said no ransom was paid despite the demand by kidnappers that the family pay 1 billion naira ($8.5 million) for her release.
