Gunmen suspected to be militants on Wednesday kidnapped four British nationals in Delta State.
When contacted, the spokesman for Delta state police, Andrew Aniamaka, confirmed the abduction of the Britons.
Aniamaka said the incident happened happened on October 13.
He added “The victims are mainly of British nationality, two of whom are a couple, and have been rendering humanitarian services in the area for a while.
“But unfortunately, they didn’t let the authorities know of their presence in the area all this while.
“There is a militant group that has been operating in the area and we believe they are the ones behind the abduction.
