Nigeria gunmen kidnap two US and two Canadian citizens

Nigeria gunmen kidnap two US and two Canadian citizens

Two police escorts were also killed in a shootout with the kidnappers, who emerged from hiding to attack the convoy.

The group, travelling in two vehicles, was reportedly attacked on their way from Kaduna to the capital Abuja, about two hours away. ..."

The army released the suspects as part of activities marking Armed Forces Remembrance Day......"
