They were freed unharmed late Friday, the South Korean foreign ministry spokesman said.

Two Nigerian co-workers were kidnapped alongside the South Koreans, with one apparently released soon after the incident, according to Hyundai. There was no information on whether the other Nigerian was also set free Friday.

It is not known if a ransom was paid.

Gangs looking for ransom money have frequently abducted expatriates working in the oil-producing Niger Delta.
