Suspected Boko Haram militants issue purported photo of three kidnapped oil survey team membersSuspected members of Boko Haram have released a photograph that appears to show three kidnapped members of an oil exploration team in northeastern Nigeria, according to the university whose staff were part of the team and which distributed the image on Friday. The abduction of the oil survey team and a rescue attempt that led to multiple fatalities have led to a U-turn by the government and military, who earlier this month had said Boko Haram were defeated and all but eliminated. The team, which included university staff and employees from Nigeria's state oil firm, was kidnapped by suspected militants from Islamist insurgency Boko Haram while searching for oil in the conflict-ridden northeast on Tuesday.
