Gunmen hijack three vehicles, kidnapped travellers on East-West road


Gunmen have hijacked three vehicles and allegedly kidnapped the travellers, who actual number could not be ascertained along the Emuoha area of the East-West road in Rivers State.

The attackers were said to have diverted the passengers to a nearby forest in the area at about 8 pm on Wednesday, following an ambush in Evekwu -Rumuodogo communities in Emuoha.

According to PUNCH, a member of local vigilante group in the area who confirmed the incident said the vehicles which were travelling to Port Harcourt from various destinations included a commercial bus filled with passengers, a Siena carrying goods and another private vehicle.


The source said all the travellers were moved into the nearby forest.

The vigilante said he and some of his colleagues managed to trace the footsteps of the captives after the incident occurred, but could not go further for fear of the unknown.

It was gathered that some policemen from the Rumuji division visited the scene on Thursday morning.

The state police acting spokesperson, Grace Iringe-koko, said she was yet to get the report of the incident as at press time.
