The Lebanese worker, who had been attacked, belonged to Triacta Construction Company, a police spokesman said.

The other victims consisted of a man by the name of Alphonsus Ahmed and another man named Abdullahi Mohammed. Ahmed died on his way to the hospital and Mohammed was injured by a bullet, according to the spokesman.

The gunman’s identification is unknown.

According to the New York Times, “A sluggish economy means the average Nigerian is getting poorer while the national security infrastructure is crumbling.”

As a result, this makes kidnappings performed for ransom popular in Nigeria.

There is an election coming up in the near future and during elections, the presence of security forces are often high, the New York Times said.

Muhammadu Buhari was re-elected for a second term last month and according to the New York Times, “He campaigned on pledges to fight corruption and build infrastructure as well as reviving the economy and quelling violence.”

One Response to Chaos occurs in Nigeria

  1. I found this article mind blowing, it is sad that countries turn into places where there is just so much chaos you have to always worry about getting killed or kidnapped. Certainly not a place I would want to raise my children, do you think that it is right for President Trump to keep them out or risk it and try to save the people that are trying to survive day by day? What would you do if you were in his position?
