Gunmen on Tuesday struck again on the Benin-Auchi road and abducted unspecified number of passengers.
Recall gunmen held siege to this same road December 3 and took a reasonable number of passengers hostage.
On this latest abduction, the gunmen were said to have attacked an Abuja bound commercial bus traveling from Benin between Ehor and Iruekpen.
According to eyewitnesses, several of the passengers “were forcefully taken into the bush”.
The police would neither confirm nor deny the incident, as spokesman of the Edo State Police Command, Chidi Nwabuzor, a Superintendent of Police, would not respond to calls and SMS sent to his mobile phone.
