The abduction of a driver and 11 passengers of a Bayelsa-Abuja bound bus by unknown gunmen operating in Kogi State has raised concerns among residents in Yenagoa.

The commercial vehicle belonging to De-Prize Transport Company, which is based in Yenagoa, was reportedly attacked by vicious gunmen, who blocked the highway on Wednesday evening.
It was learnt that two of the passengers were shot by the gunmen, one of them was said to have fortunately escaped from the assailants while others were led into a bush in Kogi.

While the fates of the two shot passengers were unknown, it was learnt that the kidnappers contacted the transport company and demanded N50m to free the driver.
The marauders were reportedly calling family members of their victims to make different ransom demands.

Investigations revealed that the next-of-kins to the passengers were invited for meetings with the management of the company to deliberate on the issue but failed to show up.
The incident was said to have disturbed the Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) Central Zone led by Kennedy Olorogun.

Olorogun said he was at the transport company to identify the passengers in the bus through the firm’s manifest.
He censured the advancement and approached the ruffians to discharge the exploited people genuinely.

He regretted the expanding dangers associated with road transport in the nation and spoke to security offices to escalate their endeavors in verifying the thruways particularly during the Yuletide.

Olorogun stated: "It is crippling that individuals never again travel openly in this nation particularly along the Kogi-Abuja passageway. We are disheartened by the advancement and we claim to the ruffians to discharge our kin unequivocally.

“We are also calling on security agencies especially those in Kogi and other gateway states to Abuja to increase their efforts to ensure the roads at their domains are safe”.
