Seven Foreigners Kidnapped In Bauchi

Gunmen on Sunday killed a guard and kidnapped seven foreign workers from the Setraco construction company site in Jama’are town in Bauchi State.

The Associated Press, quoting the Local government Chairman, Adamu Aliyu reported that those kidnapped were from Britain, Italy, Greece and Lebanon.

The Commissioner of Police in Bauchi, Mohammed Ladan, who confirmed the incidence, said the gunmen attacked a police station and a prison overnight before storming the construction firm’s compound in Jama’are town.

“We repelled the attack on police station and the security men at the prison yard also repelled the attack, but they burnt two vehicles in Jama’are police station,” he said.

“They then attacked Setraco construction, killed a local security guard and they succeeded in kidnapping people.”

The Italian foreign ministry confirmed one of its nationals was taken in the raid. A spokesman for the British Embassy in Abuja said it was investigating.

Setraco Nigeria, a construction and civil engineering company, is a subsidiary of Setraco International Holding group.

The Nigerian company, which was established in 1977, is currently working on expanding a major road in northern Nigeria.

    Well, let the companies pull then. If it had happened in the south, they and their northern collaborators would have pulled out.

      So Mr. man the solution is to pull out? To me or in the north or in the south kidnapping and any other type ot terrorism is bad and must not only be condemned but must be stopped at all cost. Nigeria and Nigerians are those suffering for these coward acts!!!

    We are just living in a state riddled with violent crimes. I think every body should start arming him/self because ,very soon this country will no longer have a government. It is really going to be a matter of survival of the fittest .
