The Kaduna State Police Command has confirmed the abduction of four foreign nationals along Kwoi-Jere road in Kagarko local government area of Kaduna State.

He said the Command had since swung into action as it had deployed its anti-kidnap unit and assured that the abductors would be brought to book.
The officer urged Nigerians to be vigilant and report any suspected persons or group of persons to the appropriate authorities.
