Gunmen have abducted six persons including some members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), who were on their way to the NYSC orientation camp, around Ochadamu community in Kogi State.
The victims were abducted from a bus they had boarded from Gboko Local Government Area of Benue state to Lagos State and robbed of their valuable items.
According to the bus driver who narrated what transpired, two gun-wielding men had jumped on the highway, shotting at the bus, and forcibly demanded that the driver stops the vehicle. When the bus was eventually stopped, other members of the gang numbering about six came out from the bush and joined the initial two to rob them.
One of the abducted corps members has been identified as Ada Agatha, a graduate of Akperan Orshi Polytechnic Yandev-Gboko.
It was learned that the kidnappers are demanding N60 million as a condition for the release of the six persons.
