A Chinese national has been kidnapped by unknown gunmen from his residence in central Nigeria’s Kogi state. The police confirmed this on Wednesday, vowing to track down the attackers and free the hostage.

Police spokesman, Elvis Aguebor recounted the incident to AFP.

“The incident happened in the early hours of Tuesday when armed men stormed the official residential quarters of the Kogi State Water Corporation and abducted a Chinese national,” he said.

“The gunmen shot into the air before fleeing with the hostage, who was a consultant to a government water project,” Aguebor added. However, the reason behind the abduction is not yet known.
