Addis Ababa: An Indian manager of a leading Nigeria-based cement company has been killed along with two others by unidentified gunmen in Ethiopia, media reports said on Thursday.
Deep Kamra, the country manager of Dangote Cement – owned by Nigeria’s Dangote Industries Limited – was attacked on Wednesday in the restive Oromiya region while returning to Addis Ababa from the factory, PM News Nigeria reported.
Kamra’s secretary and driver, both Ethiopians, were also killed by the assailants, the report said.
“The company’s director died following an attack by unknown gunmen that took place while returning from the factory alongside two company employees,” a government statement said.
“Security forces are currently pursuing the assailants.”
The Dangote plant, one of the 10 established in Africa and outside Nigeria, was commissioned in May 2015. The plant, less than 90km from Addis Ababa, is Ethiopia’s largest cement producer.
It has rich limestone reserves of about 223 million tonnes, the report said.
