THE hostage in the latest kidnapping is said to have told his abductors that he would follow them provided they left his wife alone.

Chan Sai Chen's wife, Chin Paek Nyuen, 40, said she heard her husband saying this to the abductors who broke into the bedroom also occupied by their two-year-old daughter.

"I heard dogs barking and after on checking to see what happened, I saw two armed men wearing masks holding my husband.

"Shocked, I ran into the bedroom and they tried to breakdown the door.

I heard my husband telling them not to disturb me and that he will follow them. On hearing this, the abductors fled," she said.

The abductors also stole several items including a television set and a boat engine. Chin said her husband Chan has two other business partners.
