EKO HOT BLOG reports that no fewer than fifteen passengers travelling from Abuja to Anyigba, Kogi State have been reportedly kidnapped along Itobe-Ochadamu Road in the state.
A source said the armed men blocked the vehicle, ordered the passengers out and took them into a nearby bush.
It was gathered that the kidnappers operated for over two hours unchallenged along the axis as calls to police authorities in Lokoja, the state capital, proved abortive.
The source added that residents of several communities in the state are now living in fear as their areas have become a safe haven for bandits and kidnappers.
The incessant increase of kidnapping and banditry has worsened in recent times with many residents lamenting that it has also affected business and economic activities.
Confirming the incident, a Facebook user, Gabriel Onuche Adaji, on Thursday morning said the “kidnappers already called one of the victims (sic) family but yet to make a demand”.

“Families of the passengers are here with me at zuba park looking for their family members
“This is too sad. God.”
