WATCH: 15 Oil Workers Abducted by Unknown Gunmen in Rivers State



Gunmen have kidnapped 15 oil workers on a road near Nigeria’s oil hub of Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

The unknown gunmen are said to have shot in the air on the Omoku/Elele road before taking captive the fifteen workers.

The men, employees of Nestoil – an Oil and Gas firm, were on their way to their office when they were seized.

The bus in which the men were kidnapped in was later recovered after being abandoned by the gunmen.

A resurgence of violence since the start of the year has seen a wave of devastating attacks on Nigeria’s oil infrastructure that have slashed output and hammered government revenue.
