Nigerian militants have kidnapped a British expatriate worker believed to be employed by a Nigerian oil company, it has been reported.
According to Reuters, the man works for Adamac Industries and was taken in Port Harcourt after an attack on the convoy in which he was traveling.
Two other Britons, Robin Hughes, 59, from St Margaret’s Bay and Matthew Maguire, 34, from Birkenhead are also currently held by militants, who sometimes ransom their captives or look to exchange them for fellow militants imprisoned by the Nigerian government.
For most expatriates working abroad is a fulfilling and rewarding experience, although those considering the move to a foreign country should first do their research.
The UK’s National Health Service is one of only a few that offer free care at the point of treatment – therefore for most expatriates international health insurance may be necessary to protected against unforeseen illness and injury.
The UK government has advised all British travellers in Niger Delta States of Bayelsa, Delta and Rivers (including Port Harcourt) to leave "because of the very high risk of kidnapping, armed robbery and other armed attacks".
