DSS frees five aid workers abducted by Boko Haram


The Department of State Services (DSS) has secured the freedom of five aid workers abducted by Boko Haram terrorists in Borno State.

Security sources confirmed yesterday that they were released following a negotiation with the sect, although it could not confirm if any ransom was paid to secure their release.

The humanitarian workers comprising two females and three males were abducted on December 22 last year, three days to Christmas when the rebels ambushed their convoy en route Maiduguri from Monguno.

They are, George Michael of International Organisation for Migration (IOM); Jennifer Samuel of Alliance for International Medical Action (ALIMA); Arthur Chima of Solidarity International, Asabe Musa of ALIMA and Adamu Ozeshi.
