Ebonyi: FRSC confirms abduction of two personnel by gunmen

The Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, in Ebonyi State has confirmed the abduction of two of its personnel by gunmen along the Abakaliki-Enugu federal highway.

Roads in some parts of Ebonyi and neighbouring states have recently become dangerous for commuters due to incessant abductions by gunmen.

The Nkalagu (Ebonyi) and Idodo (Enugu) axes of the road are the most affected, as cases of abduction keep increasing daily.

The Sector Commander of FRSC in Ebonyi, Henry Igwe, told newsmen on Tuesday in Abakaliki that both personnel were abducted on March 8. He said that both personnel concluded their duties at the corps’ Nkalagu office and were abducted as they returned to Enugu.

“Contacts were made and it was established by their families that they never got home. The families said that some people contacted them and said they were kidnappers and were demanding ransom. The negotiations are between the families and kidnappers and as an organisation, we have been doing as much as we can,” he said.
