Six Turkish members of a cargo ship’s crew who were kidnapped by pirates off the coast of Nigeria two weeks ago have been released and are safely back in Istanbul, a lawyer for the shipping company said on Tuesday.

 

“The six of them have been released and are back in Istanbul. All are in good health,” Fehmi Ulgener, a lawyer for the shipping firm, Kaptanoglu Denizcilik, told Reuters.

 

He declined to say whether or not a ransom had been paid.

 

The Turks, who included the M/T Puli’s captain, chief officer and chief engineer, were abducted some 90 miles off Nigeria on April 11.

 

Other members of the crew were left onboard, unharmed.
