French citizen kidnapped in Katsina State, Nigeria

A French national working for a French renewable energy company has been kidnapped in the northern Nigerian state of Katsina when around 30 gunmen attacked a residence used by the company. Sitata has posted this alert to emphasize the lack of personal security in the northern states of Nigeria where sectarian violence has increased in recent months. Several countries advise their citizens to avoid travel in this area and perhaps to consider postponing all travel to Nigeria at this time.
