Visakhapatnam: Suspected terrorists have kidnapped two Indian nationals from Gboko, a town in the Benue state of north-central Nigeria.

According to reports, Mangipudi Sai Srinivas, who hails from Visakhapatnam, and his colleague Anish Sharma were kidnapped on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, family members of both the Indian nationals have filed a complaint in this regard with police.


Srinivas's relatives on Thursday met district collector N Yuvaraj and urged him to take steps for their release.

Sharma and Srinivas were travelling to Dangote Cement Plc Plant in a car from their residential quarters at around 7.20 pm on Wednesday when a group of armed men kidnapped them at a traffic signal.

Collector N Yuvaraj said that Nigerian authorities had launched a search operation, and the district administration had contacted the Ministry of External Affairs and the Indian embassy in Nigeria about the development.
