Close to 24 hours after their abduction, the whereabouts of the kidnapped German archaeologist, Professor Peter Breunij and his research fellow, Johannes Buringer remains unknown. The two german nationals were abducted on Thursday afternoon around Kaduna State-Abuja axis, a security source in Abuja who is closely following the situation has told SaharaReporters.
Prof. Breunij is an authority on Nok culture and other issues associated with the ancient culture of Southern Kaduna.
According to the source, no contact has been established with the kidnappers of the two foreigners.
“As we speak, there is no communication, and there is also no any trace to where they are being held. And no one has asked for ransom or even communicated.
“But we have not lost hope, and we are putting in our best to track them as soon as possible.
“We are in touch with German Embassy here in Abuja, and the Nigerian commission the professor is partnering with Nok Culture project here in Abuja.”
