Thumbs down Think of the Eket Hostages

Please take time at some time today to spare a thought for the 7 hostages violently kidnapped in Eket, now starting their third week in captivity. These include one Bristow pilot and one engineer. There has been little information about them in the news, though I believe that their companies, Exxon/Mobil and the government are involved in discussions with their abductors. It's reported that the group who took them are arguing amongst themselves about how they're going to split the ransom money. I pray for a speedy and safe return to freedom for all of them.
