German Hostage Freed

The Movement of the Niger Delta People (MOND) which late Friday released the German, Mr. Guido Shiffarth, held hostage insisted they would not bow to intimidation

This came as the Rivers State Government warned Niger Delta youths to desist from kidnaps and other untoward actions that potray the region in bad light since hostage taking would never be a solution to their problems.

In a statement posted online, they said they based their action on humanitarian grounds and warned that they would still breath violence should any harm come to the duo of Alamieyeseigha and Dokubo.

According to Preye Amazo popularly called "Commander Papi" by the group who posted the message, the 62 year old expatriate was handed over to the government of Rivers State in good health and without any ransome being paid to them.

"Our action should not be translated or interpreted as capitulation of our earlier demands which are the unconditional release of our supreme leader, Alhaji Mujahid Dokubo Asari and our Governor General, Chief Solomon Peter Diepreye Alamie-yeseigha, from the gulag and forced incarceraion of the government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

"We are sounding it clear that we are keeping a watchful vigil on the welfare and situation of our leaders and we re-iterate once again that no harm or ill treatment should befall either of them or otherwise Nigeria will shake," the group stated.
