Robert Croke & Gayle Croke
Robert Croke had vowed never to go to Nigeria. He had been in the oil industry for decades ... an experienced driller who was now working as a supervisor. He had worked all over Africa.
But he knew not to go to Nigeria where oil workers are regularly kidnapped for ransom. Despite his convictions, that's exactly where he ended up. And last month, Robert Croke was held hostage at gunpoint for 10 days by Nigerian rebels. In his first interview since his return to Canada, Robert Croke and his wife Gayle agreed to speak to us from their home in Torbay, Newfoundland.
Robert Croke is a Canadian oil worker who was kidnapped and held hostage for ten days while working in Nigeria last month. His wife Gayle is with him at their home in Torbay, Newfoundland.
