Gunmen have reportedly kidnapped 14 passengers traveling to Port-Harcourt, Rivers State to Warri, Delta State.

According to Punch, the news emerged on Thursday, July 7, but the incident occurred on Monday near Rumoji in Port-Harcourt.

It was gathered that the gunmen attacked the bus their victims were traveling in and dragged them into a nearby bush from where they were taken into hiding.

Subsequently, the hoodlums contacted the family of each victim and demanded N1 million ransom per head, the report said.

"The gunmen have reduced the ransom to N100,000 for each of the passengers," a security source told the newspaper.

"The 14-seater bus was travelling to Port Harcourt when the men waylaid it and kidnapped all occupants, including the driver."
