There was tension in Agu-Ekwegbe-Opi-Nsukka, Enugu State, on Thursday morning, following the road block of the Enugu–Opi–Nsukka road by alleged kidnappers.
The road block had forced motorists to park for over two hours leaving passengers stranded and in fear.
It was reported that the kidnappers abducted unspecified number of road users, including students of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN), who were returning to school in the same axis on Sunday.
A driver who spoke with newsmen said; “We have been here since 7:15 am. This road has become something else. They operate from Ekwuege forest.”
“There is no vehicle moving to and fro since morning. There have been movements of police and soldiers towards the scene, but we don’t know the extent they have gone.”
