Again, gunmen on Sunday intercepted another Benue Links vehicle traveling from Onitsha in Anambra State to Makurdi, Benue State capital, and abducted 11 passengers.
The incident happened along the Ogbokolo/Otukpa highway in Ogbadibo and Okpokwu local government areas of the state.
One of the kidnap victims was a staff of the Nigeria Television Authority, NTA, who was said to be traveling to Makurdi to see his family.
The NTA staff identified as Mr. Thomas Tikyaa, who is an accountant, was said to have been transferred from Makurdi Zonal Network Office to Abia state, and was coming to Benue to visit his family, when the incident occurred.
A letter of complaint, written by the Zonal Director, Pam Dung Nyam, to the Commissioner of Police, Benue State Command, appealed for quick intervention to rescue the victims.
