A fully-loaded luxurious (Volvo Marcopolo) bus with the inscription “GUO OKEKE MOTORS” was on Wednesday reportedly intercepted by armed bandits with about 90 passengers kidnapped.

A source told that, “the bus which was travelling from Owerri in Imo state and heading to Abuja with about 125 passengers was ambushed by the bandits just after the Ena- river before Okhuessan community along Ewatto to Ubiaza express road at about 1:20 am”.

The passengers and the driver were taken into the forest, while the remaining passengers escaped and were later rescued by a hunter at Okhuessan forest and brought to the popular Angle-90 junction in Ubiaza  at about 5 am on Thursday.

According to the source, “at the moment, there is no clue as to the whereabouts of the kidnapped victims and there is also no rescue team whatsoever from any quarters”.

“My personal interaction with the passengers who were fortunate to have escaped and rescued revealed that bandits were fully armed”, he said.

There has been no official confirmation of the incident by the Police.
