South Korea’s Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) was the latest target of criminal gangs in Nigeria. Reports have gunmen kidnapping six workers, four foreigners and two Nigerians, who worked for HHI in Bayelsa state.
"At about 15:30 (1430 GMT) today, some armed men went to a Hyundai location in a forest by the Atlantic Ocean beach and kidnapped four expatriates and two Nigerians," Bayelsa police spokesman Fidelis Odunna told reporters.
"The police are going to beef up security around all companies that have expatriates," he said.
Last week gunmen abducted two Lebanese men working for Nigerian construction company Setraco and killed a soldier protecting them.
