The kidnappers reportedly killed the driver of the bus and left a little girl behind after kidnapping her parents alongside other passengers, SaharaReporters reported Saturday.
Although the online newspaper could not ascertain the exact location of the incident that was said to have happened on Friday, voices in a Update of the incident shared by Senator Ned Nwoko on his X (formerly Twitter) said that the vehicle was coming from Lagos.
In the Update on Saturday, a voice said “This bus is coming from Lagos. We stopped together at Akure and ate.”
Meanwhile, the Senator has decried the attack, noting that this was one of the reasons for the law on self-defence which he is sponsoring at the National Assembly.
Senator Nwoko, who expressed dismay over the handling of the kidnapping menace by the security agencies, said that perhaps if the driver had a gun or any of the passengers, the kidnappers wouldn’t certainly have their way.
