Nigerian police says it is closing in on 15 kidnapped oil workers and are hopeful of rescuing them soon.


Gunmen attacked a bus carrying 14 Nigerian employees of Nestoil Plc, a Lagos-based oil services company, and a driver on Friday afternoon near the southeastern city of Port Harcourt.


According to Nnamdi Omoni, the police spokesman in Port Harcourt, the security agencies are working on it. He urged all hands to be on deck, adding that the vehicle was recovered.
