Unknown Gunmen Abduct Syrian Engineer in Nasarawa




The Nasarawa State Police Command, has confirmed the abduction of Syrian engineer, Mah Nagor, by unknown gunmen.

The command’s spokesman, Ismalia Numan, told newsmen on Tuesday in Lafia that Nagor was abducted on Monday at a site in Azara, Awe Local Government Area.

He said the victim is a staff of Rims Construction Company handling the construction of rural roads in the area.

Numan said the gunmen stormed the site and shot sporadically to scare off workers before whisking away the expatriate to an unknown destination.

He said that detectives had been deployed on a search and rescue mission to free the engineer.

Numan assured that the command would work round the clock to ensure Nagor’s release.

He appealed to public to furnish the police with useful information that would lead to the release of Nagor.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the incident occurred barely two weeks after a Chinese man, Chui Fu Long, was abducted but later released by his captors.

Long was working on a water project in Toto local government area when he was abducted.

    Ok o. With all these suspicious abductions. I hope that he was indeed an expertrait worker and not the ones who just disguise as one only for them to be deliberately captured by Boko Haram to train them in the evil they have been wrecking all over north. I find it hard to believe that this Syrian is not an agent of ISIS or Alqueda
