The victims were said to have been travelling from one of the eastern states to Abuja when a group of hoodlums suspected to be kidnappers stopped them and took them to a bush in the Okpella area of Edo State.

The suspect was involved in a case of burglary and was arrested by vigilantes in Agbor road, Benin City, on September 3 and handed over to Esigie Division for discreet investigation and possible prosecution – before he escaped.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the state government had announced plans to make it compulsory for residents to take COVID-19 vaccine and present proof before accessing public places from second week of September.
