American and Three Other Hostages Freed!

4 Kidnapped Oil Workers Freed in Nigeria
WOW!
What a way to celebrate my birthday!
The Movement for the Emancipation of Niger Delta (MEND) has freed the American and three of his colleagues (a Briton, a Bulgarian and a Honduran) they had kidnapped and held hostage since January 11.

The good news report is music to my ears, because I wanted these innocent oil contractors to be released and God answered my prayers as a special birthday present to me.

I commend MEND for releasing the four hostages without harming them.

I hope Shell and the other multinational oil companies operating in the Niger Delta will now cooperate more with deprived indigenes of the host communities than with the corrupt rulers of the kleptocratic Nigerian government.
