Some students have been abducted by unknown gunmen along the East-West Road in Ughelli, Delta State, Channels TV reports late Monday.

They were said to be travelling in a minibus before the abduction.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Edafe Bright, told Channels that the abductees “may have been students who were returning from their school in Calabar, Cross River State on Friday night.”

The bus driver was said to be unhurt, adding that the kidnappers hadn’t demanded ransom while the police operatives had swung into action.

“The command is aware of this ugly incident, and we are doing all it takes to ensure that they are rescued unhurt,” the state PPRO tweeted on his X handle Monday night.
