The event happened a few days after the thugs abducted six people from a commercial bus.

The police announced that four of the six victims had been rescued and stated that they had stepped up their attempts to release further hostages and apprehend the offenders.

A driver at the Choba Park in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of the state confirmed the latest incident.

The driver, who spoke in confidence, said a private vehicle laden with illegally refined petroleum product and heading for Choba, was involved in the incident.

He stated that the attack occurred at 8 p.m. on the same spot where a commercial bus driver was killed and eight of his passengers were kidnapped a fortnight ago.

He said: “They were two two persons in the car, the driver and another man. The vehicle is loaded with adulterated kerosene.

“They (kidnappers) took two of them and left the vehicle there. Policemen went and saw the car. They (operatives) were acting as if something is scaring them away from the car.

“A driver that drove past the vehicle said it occured around to eight in the night. That when he was coming, he saw this two occupants of the vehicle coming towards Choba.

“Now we have confirmed it because the relative of the occupants of the vehicle are now looking for a tow van to remove the vehicle.

“It is the same spot that they killed one of our drivers. The same spot that they kidnapped five passengers. It is the same spot where that vehicle is packed”.

Mr. Emmy Georgewill, an indigene of Abonnema, a Kalabari-speaking town, revealed that the kidnappers phoned a friend of one of the victims and requested a ransom of N50 million.

Grace Iringe-Koko, a Rivers police spokesman, said the incident had not been reported to the police.
