Lagos, Nigeria. Gunmen in Nigeria on Monday kidnapped two Indonesians and also shot and injured two other people in a village in southern Akwa Ibom State, police said.

The hoodlums shot and injured two people and made away with two Indonesians, police spokesman Kingsley Woke said. The incident happened in Efiak village in Eastern Obolo local government council at about 1:30 a.m., he said. He could not give details on the circumstances surrounding the kidnapping or about the abducted foreigners, including why they were in Nigeria.

Investigations are under way and we are making efforts to free the kidnapped people and arrest their abductors, Woke said. Contacts have not been established with the kidnappers and details were still sketchy, he said.

Gunmen separately kidnapped five crew members Monday in an attack on an oil rig off the same state, Akwa Ibom. They were two French, two Americans and one Canadian, a company source said.
