One of the passengers, Bright Welekwe, who claimed to have escaped from the clutches of the kidnappers, said that the armed men forced them into a nearby bush, before five persons including himself managed to escape, remaining eleven persons.

Welekwe who confirmed that the incident took place few meters away from a police check point in the area also said that the armed hoodlums had gone far into the forest before security operatives arrived the scene of the incident.
“We were nineteen that boarded a bus from Rumuokoro going to Ahoada but when we got to Ndele three people dropped; after that, between the bush between Ndele and Elele Alimini, hoodlums ambushed us and tried to take us inside the bush; I and four other persons escaped before police personal arrived the scene.
