Not less than twenty travellers on their way to Enugu State have reportedly been kidnapped by suspected Fulani herdsmen.
It was gathered that the kidnappers were operating along the Okigwe-Onuimo axis in Okigwe LGA of Imo State.
One of the passengers who allegedly witnessed the incident said the herdsmen, disguised as police officers, intercepted the 18 seater bus they were travelling to Enugu in and ordered three passengers into a nearby bush.
He said the herdsmen also commandeered a sienna bus fully loaded with passengers, including the driver.
He said, “Fulani herdsmen were armed and disguised as police officers at a checkpoint along Okigwe road.
“They surrendered us and took away three travellers from the 18 seater-bus and all the travellers in a sienna bus also going to Enugu.
“The worst is that there was no sign of security agents and no available means of contacting them.
“As you can see, passengers who are lucky, are still in a panic mode because nobody knows where the others were taken to,” he narrated.
Meanwhile, efforts to reach the Imo State Police Public Relations Officer, Bala Elkana, proved abortive as his number was not reachable.
