The Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, on Sunday called for calm following the abduction of some foreign nationals in Edu Local Government Area of the state.
AbdulRazaq identified the victims as Turkish nationals.
The Kwara State Police Command had earlier given the names of those abducted as Seyit Keklik (25), Yasin Colak (33), Ergun Yurdakul (35) and Senerapal (40).
“The Governor is working closely with the security agencies to ensure prompt rescue of the expatriates. The Governor urges the people to go about their normal and lawful businesses and not to entertain any fear, as doing so may embolden the criminals behind the development,” according to a statement by Abdulrazaq’a Press Secretary, Rafiu Ajakaye.
