When contacted, the State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Omoni Nnamdi, a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), confirmed the incident, saying, they had recovered the bus.

Nnamdi said police detectives had intensified efforts to track down the hoodlums and rescue the victims.

“We are combing the bush in that area. Our men are all over the bush. We are on top of the matter; we are doing our best to rescue the victims and apprehend the kidnappers,” he said.
