Gunmen have kidnapped two Nigerian Agip Oil Company’s (NAOC’s) workers. They also abducted two persons.

The incident occurred along the creeks of Azuzuama in Southern Ijaw Local Government of Bayelsa State. It was learnt the victims were in the area last weekend to carry out a Joint Investigation Visit (JIV), usually done by stakeholders after an oil spill, when the gunmen kidnapped them.

A source, who spoke in confidence, said the victims included an employee of the Ministry of Environment and an official of the National Oil Spill Detection and Response Agency (NOSDRA). He said the kidnappers had contacted the Agip management, demanding ransom.
