Two, rather than three, Indian staff of a petrochemical firm were kidnapped on Saturday by gunmen in the Nigerian oil heartland of Port Harcourt, police said on Sunday.
On Saturday an army spokesman had said three Indians were abducted from their residence by suspected militants armed with dynamite and machine guns.
Indian authorities have said the men's employer, Eleme Petrochemical Company, majority-owned by Indonesia's Indorama, had received a ransom demand from the hostage-takers.
