Gunmen in the early hours of Tuesday killed a driver and kidnapped an expatriate in Kano State.
The expatriate who is a staff of Triacta Construction Company working on Kano Zoo Road was abducted at the construction site in the metropolis.
An eyewitness who pledged anonymity told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kano on Tuesday that the incident happened around 7:00am as the company’s staff were returning to work after the election break.
The eyewitness said the gunmen arrived the site and shot the expatriate’s driver before taking him away to an unknown destination.
The Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Abdullahi Haruna, who confirmed the development, said the person kidnapped was a Lebanese.
He explained that the gunmen also shot one other person dead and injured another, pointing out that the expatriate went out without his assigned security and driver.
He, however, said that investigation into the matter was on, after which details would follow.
