Russia’s nationals who were kidnapped in Nigeria feel well
Russia’s nationals who were kidnapped in Nigeria feel well, a Russian Foreign Ministry official told ITAR-TASS on Tuesday. “The Nigerian president is personally controlling the situation connected with abduction of the Russian citizens,” he said. A group of unknown people on Sunday attacked a residential compound of the aluminum enterprise Alscon of the company RUSAL in Ikot-Abasi, Akwa-Ibom state, taking the company’s six workers hostage and killing their Nigerian driver. Any group has not assumed responsibility so far. A crisis centre has been set up in the Russian embassy in Nigeria. The centre is in permanent contact with the Russian Foreign Ministry and executives of RUSAL, coordinating actions to have the abducted Russian citizens freed. The embassy’s press attache Igor Popov told ITAR-TASS by phone on Tuesday that the Russians were not hurt. “I can tell you only two things. Firstly, it is absolutely true that everything is under control and, secondly, the embassy is taking all necessary actions for the release of the Russian citizens. Because of the delicacy of the matter, we cannot give any more information as yet,” Popov said.
