Two Germans have been kidnapped in Kaduna, North-west Nigeria, the police have said.

The Germans are said to be archaeologists engaged in an escalation work at Jajela, a village in Kagarko Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

The Kaduna police spokesperson, Aliyu Usman, told PREMIUM TIMES on Wednesday evening that the two Germans were abducted at the excavation site on Wednesday morning.

“The case was reported by locals and we have swung into action to rescue them,” he said.

The names of the victims have not been ascertained, but the police spokesperson said special operatives have been deployed to rescue them.

“So far, there has been no ransom demand or contact from the abductors,” Mr Usman, an assistant superintendent of police, said.

“Unfortunately the victims did not go to site with the policemen attached to them for security,” he added.

    I thought archaeologists engage in ‘escavations’?, what are they ‘escalating’ to warrant their kidnap in Kaduna?. This question is to the reporter of this piece.

      The reporter is one, of the many ‘quota system’ journalists that now work for PT.
      Sadly, PT is supposed to be the new face of journalism in Nigeria. It now appears they too, have fallen victim to nepotism, ethnocentrism and religious fundamentalism.
      Sad.
