Gunmen kidnap 14 passengers, demand N14m ransom

Looks like everywhere you go in Nigeria, kidnapping can happen anywhere anytime regardless of your family background!

Nothing less than fourteen passengers travelling from Warri in Delta State to Port-Harcourt, Rivers State, have been kidnapped by gunmen at Rumoji, near Port-Harcourt.

The incident occurred on Monday, when the gun-wielding hoodlums waylaid the bus and dragged all occupants into a nearby bush from where they were whisked away.

The kidnappers had since contacted the family of the victims, demanded N1m ransom on each for the passengers.

“The 14-seater bus was travelling to Port Harcourt when the men waylaid it and kidnapped all occupants, including the driver.”

When contacted, the Commissioner of Police in Delta State, Mr. Zanna Ibrahim, confirmed the incident.

He however, explained that the kidnap happened at Rumoji in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, and not in his domain (Delta State).

The latest update now is that the gunmen have reduced the ransom to N100,000 for each of the passengers.
