BREAKING!! Tension As Gunmen Hijack School Bus

 

Unknown gunmen hijacked a Chimola School bus in Oba Ile Estate, Akure North Local Government Area, Ondo state, on Thursday morning.

The gunmen allegedly kidnapped staff members who were responsible for transporting pupils to school.

Around 7 a.m., the event occurred while the driver and the abducted personnel were on their way to pick up the students.

The gunmen, who were on motorbikes, rounded up the vehicle with the registration number —Lagos LSD 853 FJ, forcing the driver to come to a halt, according to a source.

The men yanked the driver out of the vehicle and threatened to kill him, according to him.

One of the hijackers eventually drove the bus away, while others fled the scene on bikes.

According to a source at the school, the shooters, who were on motorcycles, rounded up the vehicle and forced the driver to halt.

He claimed that eight men armed with firearms, cutlasses, and other weapons forced the drivers out of the truck and threatened to kill them.

“When the event occurred, the driver and the attendant were ready to pick up the first student,” he stated. The gunmen surrounded the car and assaulted it with lethal weapons.

“The driver was dragged down from the bus while one of them took the driver’s seat and drove away from the bus with the attendant.

“We don’t know where the attendant is, but we’ve reported the matter to the Oba ile Police Station.

“This is the first time we’ve had to deal with something like this here. It’s really unfortunate.”

When called, the State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) said he hadn’t been briefed on the occurrence and would find out from the Divisional Police Officer in the area.
