Jos - Security forces said on Sunday they were searching for a British construction worker they believe was kidnapped in the central Plateau state.
The search began after the man failed to show up for work on Saturday morning, said Captain Ikedichi Iweha, a spokesman for the Special Task Force, which is made up of both military and police personnel. Iweha declined to give further details.
It was not known whether the alleged kidnappers were members of Boko Haram or just bandits.
No one was immediately available for comment at the British High Commission in Abuja.
