As far as we know, one of two abducted local workers was killed as he tried to escape, according to the Thai minister.
He said he has instructed the Thai ambassador to Nigeria to urgently coordinate with the Nigerian government on this case with safety of the victims being the utmost concern.
Mr Surapong said the motive of the abduction is still unknown whether for ransom or for other reasons. The Thai ambassador to Nigeria, Somchai Paocharoen, is now closely following up on the case.
Initially, Mr Surapong said, we only know that the four victims are working there with an Israeli agricultural company.
Currently there are about 160 Thais in Nigeria, working in petroleum companies and restaurants. Some are also married to Nigerian nationals.
