Britain appeals for citizen abducted in Nigeria 1 year ago

01 March 2016, 20:35

Abuja - Britain is appealing for information about a 72-year-old citizen abducted from a construction site in central Nigeria one year ago.

A statement from the British High Commission has David Priestly's Nigerian wife appealing that he is "a good husband and loving father" well respected in the Nigerian community for his good works during the 30 years he has lived in the West African nation.

The statement says Priestly's two children miss him terribly and are desperate for any information about their father.

It says nothing about a ransom. Kidnappings for ransom are common in Nigeria. Hostages are often released unharmed once money changes hands.

Priestly was kidnapped by armed men on Jan. 21, 2015, from Kwali, 60 kilometers (38 miles) southwest of Abuja, the capital in central Nigeria.
