Passengers of an 18-seater bus and a Sienna bus conveying students of Naval college of engineering, Sapele have been whisked away by unknown gunmen.
The victims were reportedly ambushed and kidnapped while returning from Kaduna State to Sapele, Delta State.
The State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Kotongs Bello who confirmed the incident, told DAILY POST that the kidnapped Naval college students have been rescued, excluding five of them who are still with the kidnappers inside the bush.
