Intense negotiations were continuing last night to secure the release of four British oil workers who were kidnapped by a gang of armed militants in southern Nigeria.
The men were among seven seized while drinking in a bar inside an Exxon Mobil residential compound in the town of Eket in Akwa Ibom state. Two security guards were killed. A Nigerian official confirmed there had been a ransom demand, believed to be for £21m.
