Police confirm gunmen hijack of passenger bus in Rivers

The Rivers State Police Command has confirmed the kidnap of passengers around Ndele axis of the East West road.

Police spokesman, Nnamdi Omoni said the command was yet to confirm the number of victims involved in the incident.

DSP Omoni said investigation is ongoing to unravel the motive of the abductors, and to track down the perpetrators.

“We are aware of the incident but what we can tell you now is that we were able to find the bus and we discovered that there were a lot of goods inside.

“So, it seems like majority of the passengers were coming back from the market; we can’t really put a number to the victims.

“Our men are currently combing the bush and we can assure you that the victims will be rescued,” he said.

Gunmen last month abducted over a dozen passengers who were travelling in a commercial bus on the East West Road, around Ndele community in Emohua Local Government Area of Rivers State.
