UK hostage now MEND Advocate

Today is Matthew John Maguire's Birthday. Matthew was one of 27 oil workers kidnapped by members of the Movement for the Emancipation of the Nigera Delta (MEND) in September of last. All of the other hostages have been released except for him.

MEND announced earlier today that they will be realising Matthew as a birthday gift to him. But later in the day an email from MEND was recieved stating:

 "Matthew Maguire has declined the gift of a release from captivity with an argument that he is now an advocate for change in the region."
