Gunmen raid Edo highway kidnap passengers, kill vigilante

Panic everywhere as Gunmen took over the ever-busy Benin-Ekpoma-Auchi Road in Edo State and abduct commuters during the attack.

According to Report, the Kidnappers hijacked a commercial bus and forced the passengers out into a bush. The driver was reportedly made to block the road with his bus in an attempt to force oncoming vehicles to stop

An Eye Witness told Newsmen;

“What happened was that the gunmen first attacked a commercial bus at the Urhokosa/Obagie end of the road and took a number of passengers into custody.

“The operation was well planned, as the suspected kidnappers divided themselves into groups. A group led the first set of victims into the bush, while a second group forced the driver of the bus to use the vehicle to block the road.

“Other vehicles that ran into the traffic jam caused by the blockade were attacked by another group of the kidnappers, who selected victims and marched them to join the earlier captured passengers in the kidnappers’ den,” the source added

During the course of attack, a member of a vigilance group in the area was reportedly shot dead when he attempted to disrupt the operation.

A motorist, who claimed to have abandoned his vehicle and run into the bush to hide, said he met other people who also escaped into the bush.

He explained that the gunmen shot continuously for a long time without any resistance from security agents
