BEIRUT: A Lebanese man was killed in Nigeria over the weekend after getting attacked by unidentified assailants, caretaker Foreign Minister Adnan Mansour said.

“The killing of the Lebanese of the young man, Adel Jamil Bejjani was due to an attack by unidentified assailants in Nigeria,” Mansour told National News Agency Saturday evening.

Local television station LBCI had reported earlier Saturday that Bejjani was killed at his Nigeria residence during a robbery operation.

The report said that Bejjani, 29, had worked in the hotel management field in Nigeria for almost a year and was planning to go back home in Lebanon next month.

Mansour said that his ministry contacted the Lebanese Embassy in Nigeria on the request of President Michel Sleiman in order to get more details on the circumstances surrounding the incident.

He added that the embassy will follow up on the investigation with concerned Nigerian authorities, adding that Bejjani’s body will be transferred to Lebanon Monday.
