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

This was revealed by the Sector Commander of FRSC in Ebonyi, Henry Igwe, while speaking to journalists on Tuesday in Abakaliki.

Igwe claimed that both personnel were abducted on March 8 after they concluded their duties at the corps’ Nkalagu office and were abducted as they returned to Enugu State.

He said, “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.

There have been a series of reports concerning how roads in some parts of Ebonyi and neighbouring states 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.
