Gunmen in Nigeria abducted a Lebanese construction worker and killed another man in the northern city of Kano on Tuesday morning, a police official said.

The attack and abduction in the country’s second-biggest city comes amid higher than usual security as Nigeria is in the middle of an election season.

“A Lebanese attached to Triacta construction company was attacked,” said Haruna Abdullahi, a police spokesman.

The unidentified gunmen also shot one man, Alphonsus Ahmed, who died on his way to hospital, and another, Abdullahi Mohammed, was injured by a bullet, the spokesman said. He added that police were combing the area looking for the suspects.

A Triacta official declined to comment.

Kidnappings are rampant in Nigeria, where both locals and foreigners are targeted — mostly for ransom.

A sluggish economy means the average Nigerian is getting poorer while the national security infrastructure is crumbling.
