Suspected kidnappers terrorizing Elele-Ndele axis of the East West road, around Emohua Local Government Area of Rivers State have struck again, killing a driver and two passengers of a commercial bus traveling to Port Harcourt.

An eyewitness said the suspected kidnappers hijacked a commercial bus and diverted some of the occupants after killing the driver and two other passengers of the bus within Rumuekpe junction, along the East West road.

The eyewitness said the bus is owned by a popular transport company.

“The vehicle was coming from Warri when the boys came out from a nearby bush. They shot at the driver and the bullets touched two other passengers and they died instantly.

“Their bodies are lying lifeless on the road. The boys took away the remaining passengers in the bus into the bush.
