Abuja - A group of seven gunmen kidnapped a Chinese national in central Nigeria this week, witnesses said on Wednesday.
Cui Fu Long X, was working on a water plant in Toto local government area in Nasarawa State on Tuesday when a group of armed men entered the site and kidnapped the engineer.
"No one knew what was happening and who the gunmen were," a co-worker told dpa. "We just ran for our lives."
Nasarawa State police spokesperson Umaru Ismaila said the police were investigating the abduction.
The kidnapping comes two days after unknown gunmen abducted an American missionary, Phyllis Sotor, in the town of Ajaokuta in neighbouring Kogi State.
