Moroccan Cyclist Duo Kidnapped At The Niger-Burkina Faso Borders Released
Rabat, May 15 (TNA) Thanks to the intervention of the Kingdom's security services, the two Moroccan nationals, both cyclists, who were kidnapped at the Niger-Burkina Faso borders have just been released. Abderrahmane Serhani and Driss Fatihi were abducted on April 1, 2023 at the Niger-Burkina Faso borders.
As soon as the kidnapping was confirmed, the Moroccan security services did everything possible to free the two victims. This has now been achieved thanks to the cooperation between the Moroccan security services and their Nigerien counterparts.
The two captives are safe and sound, according to well-informed sources. They are currently undergoing medical examinations to ensure their state of health, prior to their repatriation to the Kingdom, according to the same sources.
The Moroccan security services contribute strongly to South-South security cooperation, notably through training and the sharing of their expertise. They enjoy great respect from their counterparts across the continent.
