Lagos: Gunmen have opened fire on two vehicles carrying German nationals in southwest Nigeria, with one killed at the scene and another abducted, police and the construction firm Julius Berger said Monday. 

"About four armed men emerged from the bush near Sagamu (in Ogun state) on Friday morning and attacked," police spokesman Abimbola Oyeyemi told AFP. "A bullet hit one German and he was confirmed dead on arrival at the hospital, while the hoodlums abducted another German."

A Julius Berger spokeswoman in Nigeria said the two were travelling in two separate vehicles, without their security escort.
