A video footage is currently trending online showing three African men (one Nigerian, two Cameroonians) being held hostage after a business deal reportedly went wrong in Iraq.
In the video, one of the men can be heard telling his people to send money because they have been arrested. He said that they are making ‘blood money’ over there (dollars) and that the person who is holding them hostage says he will kill them if the money is not sent to him.
An Arab man who showed his face in the video, pounced the men in the stomach as he threatened to kill them if he doesn’t receive his money.
Facebook user Tony Chiazor who posted the video online urged Nigerians to help locate business associates, friends and relatives that can identify and help them.
