The Philippine government confirmed a Pinay married to an Iranian living in southern Nigeria died during her kidnapping. She drowned after either trying to escape from the boat or when she jumped overboard to prevent from being assaulted.

In other news, the 24 sailors kidnapped two weeks ago are still being held.

CNN had reported that they were being held by the MEND group of insurgents, but in a letter today they deny being involved.

The Filipinoes, Gbomo said, “were abducted by a community in Gbaramatu with the connivance of FNDIC in Warri who were paid by local politicians to blackmail the government into annulling the PDP primaries in Delta State.”

In the meanwhile, the Philippine government has banned Pinoys from working in that country. Many Philipinos are experienced oil field workers, working in many countries around the world.
