Travellers allegedly kidnapped by terror herdsmen in Imo
It has been gathered that about twenty travellers who were traveling from Owerri to Enugu State were reportedly abducted by suspected Fulani herdsmen on Thursday June 10, 2021.
Sources said that the abductees operate along the Okigwe-Onuimo axis in Okigwe Local Government Area of Imo State.
An alleged eyewitness said the herdsmen disguised as police officers, intercepted 18 seater-bus they were travelling to Enugu and moved three passengers into a nearby bush.
He narrated the herdsmen also hijacked a sienna car loaded with passengers into a bush.
He said, “Fulani herdsmen were armed and disguised as police officers at a checkpoint along Okigwe road.
“They surrendered us and took away travellers from the 18 seater-bus and all the travellers in a sienna bus also going to Enugu.
“The worst is that there was no sign of security agents and no available means of contacting them.
“As you can see, passengers who are lucky are still in a panic mode because nobody knows where the others were taken to,” he narrated.
