Mukhtar Aliyu, a spokesperson for the Kaduna State Police command in Nigeria has said that two Americans and two Canadians have been kidnapped by unknown gunmen in Kaduna, Northern Nigeria. Nigerian police have swung into action and the case is being investigated.
The kidnapped foreign nationals were members of an investment team for a solar power project in Kafanchan district in Southern Kaduna. No wonder, foreigners are no longer interested in going to invest or set up a business in Nigeria.
They were kidnapped in the evening around 7pm while traveling with police escorts from Kaduna city to Abuja. It is sad to say that the two policemen who were escorting them were reportedly killed in a gun battle which ensured between the police and the abductors, who unexpectedly ambushed them.
