The main militant group in Nigeria’s Niger Delta region says it has located a kidnapped Israeli businessman, but has rescinded its offer to help rescue him.

Nigerian police say gunmen kidnapped the Israeli businessman from his home in the Niger Delta’s main city, Port Harcourt, late Tuesday.

In a statement sent to reporters Thursday a spokesman for the Movement for Emancipation of the Niger Delta says it is now demanding an apology from Israel National News, a broadcast service which described MEND as a terrorist group.

The MEND statement says it will now plead with the businessman’s captors to be human but will not otherwise intervene.

On Tuesday, the group had said it was not involved in the Israeli man’s kidnapping and offered to help secure his release.

The Israeli Foreign Ministry says it is doing everything it can to secure the man’s release as quickly as possible.
