Gunmen kidnapped five passengers traveling in a commercial bus at Emuoha-Kalabari Road in Rivers State.
The gunmen shot sporadically after ambushing the vehicle at a bad spot in the area at about 8pm on Saturday, September 17.
They reportedly took the driver and seven passengers into a nearby bush.
Grace Iringe-Koko Police spokesperson who revealed that the command is yet to get a clear picture of the incident, told newsmen that the State Commissioner of Police had already called a meeting of stakeholders in the area to get to the root of the matter.
“The CP has called stakeholders, including the local government chairmen and the anti-cultism. He has deployed anti-kidnapping and other tactical units to comb the area,” she said.
