An American aid worker in Nigeria has been kidnapped in what authorities call a "purely criminal" act.

American aid worker kidnapped in Nigeria

An American aid worker in Nigeria has been kidnapped in what authorities call a "purely criminal" act.

Kogi state is located away from the areas where Boko Haram operates, making it likely that the kidnapping is not related to terrorism. But there is also the possibility that an offshoot group could have kidnapped the aid worker, or that she might be sold to another group. Police have not said if they suspect a certain group or band of criminals.

The woman, who was not identified, was kidnapped on Monday, near the town of Ajaokuta, Ogunjemilusi said.
