Nigeria Alerte de sécurité

Gunmen kidnap six people in Kaduna state November 19; similar incidents possible over the near term

TIMEFRAME expected from 21/11/2019, 12h00 until 23/11/2019, 11h59 (Africa/Lagos). COUNTRY/REGION Kaduna


Gunmen attacked a village in Igabi local government area in Kaduna state and abducted six villagers on the night (local time) of Tuesday, November 19. The kidnappers reportedly contacted the family of one of the victims on Wednesday, November 20, demanding a ransom.

Similar incidents are possible in Kaduna state and other parts of northern Nigeria over the near term.


Kidnappings are common in Nigeria, especially in northern states. Both Nigerians and foreign nationals have been targeted by kidnappers.


Individuals in Kaduna state are advised to remain vigilant, vary daily schedules and itineraries, and refrain from sharing personal information with unknown persons to limit the risk of being targeted by potential kidnappers. If attacked, remain calm, do not offer resistance, and adopt a cooperative attitude. Do everything in your power to keep the situation as calm as possible (e.g. accepted offered food, engage in conversation initiated by your captors, avoid all political or potentially inflammatory topics, etc.).

The security situation in Nigeria remains complex. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel.
