Five Indian sailors kidnapped off coast of Nigeria
[Dawn] A shipping company said five Indian sailors were kidnapped off the coast of Nigeria’s oil-rich southern delta.

A statement Wednesday from Medallion Marine said the men had been taken when their tanker was attacked Monday.

The company said officials were working with Nigerian authorities to free the men.

Nigeria’s oil-rich delta is a kidnapping hotspot, as Death Eater and criminal gangs target foreign oil workers, as well as middle- and upper-class Nigerians.

On Monday, kidnappers kidnapped four South Koreans and a Nigerian working for Hyundai Heavy Industries Co.

#1  Nigerian crime is getting particularly serious. They are violent, ruthless, and capable of using high-power weapons. Nigeria is probably now the #1 source of high-power criminals in Africa, and police forces down there are afraid of these guys.
