Donald Trump Praise the U.S Special Forces for the Rescue of an American Citizen.
On his Social Media account he said
“Last night, our Country’s brave warriors rescued an American hostage.
Our Nation salute the courageous soldiers behind the daring night time rescue operation and celebrate the safe return of yet another American citizen”.
A citizen of the United States who was abducted in Niger this past week has been rescued in a US military operation in neighbouring Nigeria, according to US officials.
Philipe Nathan Walton stays close to the border between Nigeria and Niger where he owns his farm.
He was taken from his farm in Massalata village in the southern part of Niger early on Tuesday morning by armed men who demanded ransom from his Father.
An official who spoke on condition of anonymity, said there were no solid indications that Walton’s kidnapping was terrorism-related and that it was instead “trending toward a kidnapping for ransom”.
Earlier this week the kidnappers had called and demanded ransom from Walton’s father, who lives approximately 1km (about half a mile) away from his son’s farm.
United States law permits multiple citizenship.
Citizens of other countries who are naturalized as United States citizens may retain their previous citizenship, although they must renounce allegiance to the other country.
A United States citizen retains United States citizenship when becoming the citizen of another country, should that country’s laws allow it.
During the rescue operation no one was hurt which makes President Donald Trump Happy.
