Nigeria kidnap victim Chris McManus was 'unlawfully killed'

An engineer from Greater Manchester was unlawfully killed by his kidnappers in Nigeria minutes after a UK-led rescue operation stormed in, an inquest found.

Hostages Chris McManus, 28, from Oldham, and Italian Franco Lamolinara, 48, died on 8 March 2012 before Nigeria and UK forces were able to rescue them.

They had been kidnapped in May 2011 after gunmen stormed their building.
