Ebonyi FRSC confirms kidnapping of staff by gunmen

0 comment 1 minutes read

The Ebonyi State Command of the Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, said two of its personnel have abducted by gunmen along the Abakaliki-Enugu federal highway.

The gunmen have recently made some parts of Ebonyi and neighbouring states unsafe for travellers as a result of continuous attacks and abductions.

The Nkalagu (Ebonyi) and Idodo (Enugu) axes of the road are the most dangerous, as cases of abduction are on the rise daily.

The Sector Commander of FRSC in Ebonyi, Henry Igwe, while addressing journalists on Tuesday in Abakaliki, said that both operarives were whisked away on March 8 at the end of their shift at the corps’ Nkalagu office and were abducted as they returned to Enugu.

“Contacts were made and it was established by their families that they never got home. The families said that some people contacted them and said they were kidnappers and were demanding ransom. The negotiations are between the families and kidnappers, and as an organisation, we have been doing as much as we can,” he said.
