Nigeria: Four Construction Workers Kidnapped in Bayelsa

Unknown armed men have abducted four construction workers at a dredging site along the Nembe waterways in Nembe Local Government area of Bayelsa State.

The kidnapped workers are Nigerian nationals attached to Setraco Nigeria Ltd, the construction firm handling the Bayelsa-Delta flank of the East-West road, reported Premium Times.

The workers were identified as Caleb Agene, Otuke Magic Kingdom, Gabriel Oghene and Godwin Odukpong.

“The dredging crew members were whisked away from their dredging base by the armed men who came in a speedboat. We heard sporadic shooting Saturday night but we never knew it was from the dredging firm base,” a witness said.
