*Exclusive: Eight oil workers kidnapped in Lagos*

At least eight employees of MRS Oil Nigeria Plc have reportedly gone missing in Lagos and are believed to have been kidnapped.

Sources told _The Africa Report_ that the workers left the office after the close of work around 6 p.m. on 26 June and boarded a boat at a jetty on the island. They have not been seen since.

“We believe they were kidnapped by gunmen because the boat did not capsize and it has been found around Ikorodu, a suburb in Lagos,” said a security official who asked to remain anonymous because he was not authorised to speak to the press.

Lagos police spokesman, Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed the development but declined to provide further details.
