It was learnt that the hoodlums numbering about twenty fled the scene after a gun duel with heavily armed policemen numbering over thirty along the highway.

While the gunshots lasted, motorists abandoned their vehicles for fear of being hit by bullets.

It would be recalled that some persons, including the Personal Assistant to the Bishop of Flock of Christ Mission, Simeon Okah, were abducted at the same spot nearly two months back.

They were released after an undisclosed amount was allegedly paid as ransom for their release.
