Breaking News: Custom Officer Kidnapped and Killed

Reports reaching the Antiguan Trumpet indicate that Mr. Nigel Christian, one of the Customs officers investigating alleged fraud at the port, was kidnapped at gunpoint and killed earlier this evening in McKinnons. 

In a Facebook post more than 6 hours ago, the brother of Nigel Christian described four men in army fatigues entering his mother’s home, disabling the surveillance cameras and beating him. The mother was reportedly threatened with a gun in her mouth, and Nigel was taken away in a pick-up.

At the time of the Facebook post, the concerned sister appealed to anyone with information as to the whereabouts of Nigel Christian, to contact the nearest police station.

Antiguan Trumpet News will continue to follow this story.
