A British tourist was among the two people shot dead at a Kajuru castle in Kaduna last Friday, by unknown gunmen who also abducted three others.
The victim was identified as Faye Mooney, and it was gathered that she travelled from Lagos to have some fun at the resort when they were attacked around 11pm.
Before her death, she worked with a non-governmental organisation, Mercy Corps, and she was reportedly killed alongside Mathew Oguche, a staff member of an international NGO, Safety Organisation.
The British High Commission in a statement by the Head of Communications, Policy & Corporate Lead, Department for International Development, David Smith, in Abuja on Sunday, explained that the deceased Briton’s next-of-kin had been notified.
The statement said,
“The British High Commission is aware of an incident involving the death of a British national and a Nigerian national in Kaduna State, late on Friday evening.
“Mooney was killed on Friday, 19 April 2019 in an attack at Kajuru Castle, near Kaduna, alongside a Nigerian national, Oguche. Mooney was employed in Nigeria with the NGO Mercy Corps. Oguche worked for the International NGO Safety Organisation”
