    The four, along with two Nigerians, were on a boat on their way to work at a fish farm in Rivers State when the kidnappers came up alongside them. They grabbed all six but later forced the Nigerians off and into the water, drowning one of them.

    State agriculture commissioner Emmanuel Chindah said there was no ransom demand as of yet.
