Dare-devil kidnappers have abducted two Indian nationals in Nigeria.
The incident occurred in Ibadan, Oyo State last week.
Equally important, the development was confirmed by the Oyo State Command of the Nigeria Police on Sunday. The Command has also warned foreign nationals to be vigilant over the rising spate of kidnapping.
1st News reports that the warning comes just days after gunmen kidnapped two Indian workers.
The latest incident saw the kidnappers seize the two Indian nationals on Wednesday; as they drove out of a pharmaceutical firm in Ibadan. Police say the kidnappers shot at the rear tyres of the vehicle conveying the two Indian men; forcing it to stop.
Meanwhile, spokesman of the Oyo State Police Command, Olugbenga Fadeyi, revealed that the Police are intensifying efforts to secure the release of the abducted Indians.
Specifically, he made this known in a statement released to newsmen on Sunday. However, he could not confirm if the kidnappers had made contact with the families of the expatriates.
“All expatriates are advised to be vigilant and be watchful especially during this period. Security agencies should be alerted about any suspicious movement around their facilities,’’ he added.

This figure regarding the abduction from the Katsina school was revealed by Maale; while narrating how he escaped from his captors to newsmen on Sunday, December 13.
“There were a total of 520 of us that were taken by the gunmen from the school.
“After they took us away we stopped inside the bus where they made the older students take a headcount. We counted 520,” he said.
