The Lokoja-Obajana-Kabba Road in Kogi State has become the kidnappers and bandits play field, as six staff of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), were abducted by gunmen on Sunday.
A staff of JAMB, who confirmed the abduction, said that the victims, were from the head office in Abuja, and were headed to Kogi West, in preparation for the mock UTME exams.
The source, who pleaded anonymity, however declined to give more details, while all efforts to get confirmation from the Kogi State Police Command proved abortive, as at the time of filing this report.
In a related development, a staff of the Federal Ministry of Works on Saturday narrowly escaped when suspected kidnappers opened fire on his vehicle, leading to an accident.
The incident happened between Oshokoshoko and Obajana around 5:30pm. The federal staff and the only other occupant of the vehicle are still in hospital.
