The South African citizen abducted in Nigeria had not been released by yesterday, the Department of International Relations and Cooperation said.

"There is no new information on that (kidnapping). The last I heard the Nigerian government was negotiating for his release," said spokesperson Nomfanelo Kota.

Supersport sound engineer Nick Greyling and two Nigerian colleagues - cameraman Alexander Effiong and commentator Bowie Attamah - were seized from their bus on Monday in the Imo province, near the Oweri airport.

The kidnappers' demands were not known or made public yet.

Effiong escaped soon after the attack. - Sapa
