The gunmen also killed a local hunter who attempted to resist them from abducting the foreigners.
The Spokesman for the Kaduna State Police Command, Aliyu Usman, who confirmed the incident to Channels Television, said that the two German nationals have been working with the Nok Archealogical Centre in Kargarko Local Government Area of Kaduna state for the past 10 years, where they have been conducting research on Nok Terracota and Artifacts.

According to the Police spokesman, the Germans were in company of the villagers while working inside the bush before the gunmen invaded the bush and took them away.

He explained that adequate security had been provided for them since their arrival in the state, but in some cases, the foreigners would decide to move about freely with the villagers especially during their research work inside the bush.
