TWO TURKISH ENGINEERS KIDNAPPED
Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Turkish Embassy in Nigerian capital Abuja stepped in after news reports regarding kidnapping of two Turkish engineers in Nigeria.
Diplomatic sources said today kidnappings occurred at a region where oil companies densely located and these kinds of incidents are common in the region.
Turkish engineers are believed to be kidnapped for ransom. The names of the kidnapped engineers are Ilker Izci and Murat Orhan.
Kidnapping is not thought to be against Turkish citizens, underscored the same sources.
Pointing out that similar cases were resolved in 2-3 days, sources said Ministry of Foreign Affairs and relevant authorities are monitoring the issue closely to solve the problem.
Earlier today, Nigerian police said gunmen kidnapped two Turkish engineers from their car in Port Harcourt in Nigeria's oil-producing Niger Delta.
