ROME - An Italian engineer who was abducted by a group of armed men in the Kwara state in western Nigeria was released on Friday, a spokesman for Italy's Foreign Minister Giulio Terzi said.
Details on his release were not immediately available, the spokesman said.
In March, a Briton and an Italian abducted in northwest Nigeria were both killed in a failed rescue attempt by British and Nigerian special forces. The mission was condemned by Rome, which had not been informed beforehand.
