Breaking news! British national kidnapped in Nigeria


Incident believed to have happened as the person was leaving Lagos airport
A British national has been kidnapped just after leaving the international terminal of Lagos airport, a consulate spokesperson said.

In a statement, the British High Commission said it was “working closely with others to secure  the release of the hostage”. It added that no more detail could be provided at this stage due to the “sensitive nature” of the incident.
A Foreign and Commonwealth Office spokesperson said: “We are aware of reports of a missing person and are liaising with Nigerian authorities.”

The kidnapping comes less than four months after a British man was taken hostage and then quickly released at the end of March, also in Lagos.


Back then a police spokesman told agency reporters: “Lagos has never had a reputation for kidnapping and we want that to remain as it is.”
