Five aid workers abducted by the dreaded Boko Haram terrorist group last December have regained their freedom.
Naija News reports that the aid workers release was confirmed by security sources according to Premium Times.
The aid workers were kidnapped on December last year after their vehicle was ambushed between Monguno and Damaturu.
The release of the aid workers was reportedly facilitated by the State Security Service.
“It is a big day for us here in Borno with the release of the five abductees,” the source said.
The source said five abducted arrived at the DSS office in Maiduguri at about 4 pm.
The source said: “Two of the abductees were staff of ALIMA, an international NGO; one from Solidarity International, one from International Organization on Migration and one from Red Cross.”
