International charity organisation Action Against Hunger has said that six of its workers kidnapped in Nigeria last week have appeared in a video.
The charity body, Concise News understands, said that the six workers, comprising one staff member, plus drivers and health workers employed locally, are “apparently in a good condition of health.”
In the three-minute video, a woman wearing a bright blue hijab, says she is the abducted aid worker as she addresses the camera in English while seated in front of five men she describes as her colleagues.
The NGO has urged the captors to release them.
The hostages are believed to be held in the enclave of Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) on the shores of Lake Chad.
Villagers told news agency AFP the kidnapped aid workers were seen with their armed captors passing through the villages of Chamba and Gatafo on the day of their abduction.
But no group has claimed responsibility for the abduction.
This news medium understands that Boko Haram and ISWAP are the two main groups active in Nigeria’s northeast sub-region, where the abduction happened.
