The two men were commanded out of the vehicle and taken away while the wife to one of the victims and children were left stranded on the road

Those who crossed the scene shortly after that incident, at about 7 pm said the kidnappers used vehicles to block the road and shut sporadically with some pallets of the bullet left behind in the scene.

Families of the abducted persons said the kidnappers were yet to make contact with them as at press time, but it was learned Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi had ordered for combing of surrounding bushes in the area.

State Police Public Relations Officer, Daniel Ndukwe, could not pick his calls nor react to a text message sent to him on the matter.
