Nigerian group claims pirate kidnappings netted $2M ransom

“The Nigerian group that took credit for freeing two kidnapped American sailors from a supply vessel last month claims the caper netted a $2 million ransom.

In an email to the shipping blog G-Captain, the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) said it arranged the release of the two unidentified crew members kidnapped from the Edison Chouest-owned supply vessel C-Retriever. Officials at Louisiana-based Edison-Chouest did not immediately return calls seeking confirmation of the ransom amount.”
