A Polish cargo vessel crew, kidnapped last month off the Nigerian coast, have been freed.

“Everything ended happily. The sailors are safe and sound, we are glad that they are coming back to their families,” said Beata Szydlo, Poland’s Prime Minister.

Pirates attacked the Cyprus-registered Szafir cargo vessel at the end of November and kidnapped its captain and four crew.

Polish Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski thanked Nigerian authorities and the operator of the vessel, EuroAfrica, for their co-operation in efforts to free the crew.
