Kano - Police say gunmen have abducted a Lebanese businessman in Kano, where people often are kidnapped for ransom.
A spokesman said Hassan Zein was seized Monday by armed men who stormed the compound of the M.C. Plastic Co. factory in Kano.
Assistant superintendent Musa Magaji Majiya said the unidentified attackers have not yet made a ransom demand.
Newspapers recently have reported on cases of disgruntled wives and other family members pretending to be kidnapped to extort money from a husband or other relative.
