The foreign sailors include a Russian,three Ukrainians and two Indians working with Century Group of Company,an oil servicing and marine company based in Lagos.

There were fifteen crew members on board the company vessel when the gunmen numbering about ten in two speed boats attack them and whisked away the foreigners.

The Bayelsa State Police Public Relations Officer Fedelis Odunna who confirmed the incident says the police have already swung into action to track down the kidnappers.

Meanwhile the kidnappers of the foreign sailors at the Koluama river in Southern Ijaw Local Government Area of Bayelsa State are demanding the sum of two hundred million naira before they would be released.

Report says the kidnappers dropped their demand before whisking away the foreign sailors.
