Tourist killed in Kaduna was a British female aid worker in Nigeria
The expatriate that was killed in Kaduna by kidnappers has been named by the British high commission as Faye Mooney. She had travelled from Lagos as a tourist and was attending a party before the incident happened, police said.
The commission said it was aware of the incident that happened late on Friday but added it would not speculate on the motive or nature of attack. There has been no claim of responsibility for the incident and the kidnappers have yet to be identified, police said.
Mooney was employed in Nigeria by a non-governmental organisation called Mercy Corps. Her next of kin have been notified, the commission said.
Suspected kidnappers armed with dangerous weapons had attacked a recreational resort called Kajuru Castle in Kajuru local government area shooting sporadically and in the process shot dead two persons, including an expatriate lady, and took away three others.
The police did not name the other person killed.
