Gunmen kidnap Romanian engineer in Niger Delta

Gunmen have kidnapped a Romanian engineer in Nigeria’s oil-producing Niger Delta, police said on Tuesday.

Officers have launched a search for the man in the area of Owa Oyibo, where he was abducted late on Monday, said Celestina Kalu, a spokeswoman for police in Delta state.

Kalu added that he was working for Dextron Nigeria Ltd, a construction firm.

The southern swampland has been hit by a wave of militant attacks on oil and gas facilities and a general breakdown of law.

The Militants from the Niger Delta are  fighting for a greater share of oil revenues for the impoverished Niger Delta, which is home to much of Nigeria’s oil production.
