Gunmen Kidnap French Man In Katsina by Nobody: 2:35pm On Dec 20, 2012
A group of 30 gunmen have used dynamite to force their way into a well-guarded compound in northern Nigeria and seize a French engineer, police say.

Two Nigerian guards were killed in the attack, said Katsina state police commissioner Abdullahi Magaji.

As the unknown group fled, they attacked a police station, he said.

Katsina has been relatively unscathed by months of violence in northern Nigeria carried out by Boko Haram Islamist militants.

Mr Magaji told the AFP news agency he did not think the militant group, which is based in the Borno state capital, Maiduguri, was behind the kidnapping.

The kidnapped man worked for a French company on a wind power project in the town of Rimi, about 25km (15 miles) from Katsina city , reports the AFP news agency.

Two security guards were shot dead in the attack, while a police officer was wounded, the police commissioner said.

Hallmark of AQMI. The French have been targets over the past two years (Niger, Mali, Mauritania). More kidnapping incidents likely...

Hmm, I guess the Mod put the full story there, I did not! Good job whoever did it.
Kidnapping is not limited to a part of Nigeria, just as bombing is all over Nigeria only that one is more dominant in one region than the other!

Why are you in a hurry? The kidnapping is in the north but the kidnappers will be from the east. Just wait and see, it's their calling.

I'm quite shocked to know that a non northner, a foreigner at that, would have the guts to live in the north for any reason.
