Gunmen attack bus, kill driver, 2 passengers

Gunmen last week attacked a 14-seater bus along the Rumuekpe, in Elele-Ndele axis of East West Road, in Emohua Local Government Area of the state, killing the driver, two passengers and kidnapped the other passengers.
According to reports, the bandits were responsible for violent crimes perpetrated along Elele-Ndele in Emohua, and other neighbouring communities along the East-West Road.
It was gathered that the suspected kidnappers hijacked the Navy-Blue Hiace bus  after shooting sporadically at the vehicle and occupants.
The gunmen then abducted the rest of the occupants after killing the driver and two  passengers. An eyewitness, Sinachi, claimed that only one woman was allowed to go because she had a bad leg.
The spokesman of Rivers State police command, Nnamdi Omoni, is yet to confirm the incident.
