Nigeria militants abduct four UK nationals in the Niger Delta

The four people believed to be British, who have been kidnapped in Nigeria’s southern Delta state were missionaries.

A couple and two others were taken around 02:00 local time last Friday.

A local chief told the BBC they had been living in a rural community providing free medical aid for up to 10 years.

Police spokesman Andrew Aniamaka said no ransom demand had yet been made.

He said militants, calling themselves the Karowei, were the main suspects.

Kidnapping for ransom is common in the oil-rich Niger Delta.
