This comes days after another bus belonging to Agofure motors was also attacked on the road while its passengers were abducted.

The Rivers State Police command in January declared a state of emergency on the Emohua axis of the road.

The police also said that it was going to mobilize men to comb through the bushes in the area to arrest hoodlums hiding in the bushes.

However, a week after the state of emergency was declared, the police abandoned the state of emergency, leaving travelers in at the mercy of criminal elements in the area.

The police are yet to respond to the latest wave of abduction by the hoodlums.
