Suspected herdsmen have allegedly abducted 15 passengers in a bus in Imo State, while four other passengers were kidnapped by gunmen also suspected to be Fulani herdsmen in Ogun state.
The Sun reports that the incident in Imo happened on Arondizuogu-Okigwe Express Road at about 8am on Thursday, June 10. Eyewitnesses claim the suspected Fulani herdsmen believed to be harbouring around Eke-Onuimo, in Onuimo Local Government Area of the State, jumped out from the bush and attacked the bus fully loaded with passengers and whisked them into the bush in the area.
The herdsmen also allegedly stopped another commercial vehicle and abducted three passengers from it and left the others to go.
