Armed men have abducted 14 staff members of Nestoil Plc in Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni Local Government Area (ONELGA) of Rivers State.

The incident occurred yesterday afternoon, along Omoku /Elele road, when the oil workers were returning from work to their base in Port Harcourt.

Saturday Sun gathered that the company bus conveying the workers to their office in Port Harcourt was accosted by heavily armed men. A source said the oil workers were diverted to an unknown destination at gunpoint.

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.
