Suspected gunmen abducted unspecified number of passengers after attacking an Abuja-bound commercial bus travelling on Tuesday along the dreaded Benin-Auchi Road in Edo State.
The passengers were said to be travelling from Benin and was kidnapped between Ehor and Iruekpen.
The State Police Public Relations Officer, Chidi Nwabuzor, who said he isn’t aware of the development, added that some incidents are not reported.
“I am not aware of it. Some incidents are not reported and even when they are, because they are from local government divisions, they do not get to us immediately.
“So, give us some time for us to get in touch with the officers and men in the affected area,” Nwabuzor said.
Some eyewitnesses said several of the passengers “were forcefully taken into the bush?” after the bus conveying them was forced to stop by the gunmen.
