Four abducted Chinese nationals have once again tasted freedom after they were rescued from the hands of sea pirates.

Army spokesperson, Major Ojo Adelegan says the four expatriates were kidnapped on Friday while travelling from Lagos to Ondo.

He says the military received a distress call and captured one of the kidnappers while some of the Chinese nationals were wounded.

The military declined to give names or other details.
