Exact same Issue. This is a main story quest and prevents the player from progressing. Need a fix ASAP.

Same. I though it might be because I left the area without talking to him. I came back and all of them were standing back in the cages except the cages were open.

having same problem.  quest marker for "speak to niilj" after freeing the angora from cages leads me back to a cage with an angora standing in it, but its open.  I also drove away from the labor camp after freeing/before talking.  maybe thats the issue? 

i also dont seem to be able to save the game if i am in the camp near him.  Does the game consider me in combat?  

 

When i drove back to the camp to try to complete, i did notice a kett dropship not too far from the camp.  Do we need to clear that out before continuing? cant test, need to go to work!

Same here, this is a game breaking bug.

Very similar to what I have! I am stuck on the same quest, but on the "remove remaining Lett stage." Same cause: leaving the mission site then coming back later. (I left the planet if that helps.) Also similar to other reports, Angara are stuck in place with their cage floating above their heads.

Only thing that seems different for me is that letter dropships keep on coming, much much more than in previous points in the game . Allies also keep spamming the "its the kett" voicelines.

Hopefully others can relate and these issues cam be solved.
