Lokoja-Abuja road: Corps member, eight others kidnapped

A Batch A corps member, Mr Samuel Adigun, and eight others have been kidnapped by some gunmen in army uniforms near Idu village, along Lokoja-Abuja Road.

It was learnt that the corps member, who is serving in the Abaji area council secretariat, boarded a bus on his way from Abaji to Lokoja and was kidnapped alongside other eight passengers.

A resident of Idu village, who spoke on condition of  anonymity, said the incident happened last Thursday.

He said, “The gunmen shot the tyres of the unmarked Toyota commuter bus and forced the driver to stop before they whisked away the corps member and eight other passengers.”

Meanwhile, a senior staff with the National Youth Service Corps who pleaded anonymity, confirmed the abduction of the corps member.

“I am not in a position to speak to the press about the incident, but a contact has since been established with the kidnappers,” he said.

Efforts to speak with the spokesman for the Kogi State Police Command, DSP Williams Aya, proved abortive as calls put to his line did not go through. Punch
