Gunmen have abducted the monarch of Ikuru town in the Andoni Local Government Area of Rivers State, HRM Aaron Ikuru, at his residence on Sunday night, and some boat travellers, including a lecturer at the University of Port Harcourt, who were returning to Port Harcourt from Andoni were kidnapped and taken away by armed men.
Mr Maurice Ikuru, monarch’s palace spokesperson, confirmed the kidnap on Monday morning, saying “Yes, it’s true. It happened about 8:30 or 9pm.”
Spokesman of the State Police Command, Nnamdi Omoni, confirmed that some Port Harcourt bound travellers were kidnapped but their identities were not yet known.
“I can confirm that some persons who were coming back from Andoni were ambushed and kidnapped. Investigation is on-going to get the details,” Omoni stated.
