Gunmen suspected to be Fulani herdsmen have kidnapped some passengers including students of the Abia State University Uturu ( ABSU).

According to Punch, the gunmen attacked a shuttle bus conveying the passengers along Okigwe-Uturu Road on Tuesday and killed the driver.

This comes two days after seven students of Abia State University were kidnapped along the same route.

The seven students were kidnapped on their way back to school around 6:pm on Sunday, May 15, along Okigwe-Uturu in a Siena vehicle.

One of the identified victims of the Sunday incident has been identified as Emmanuel Nzubechukwu Ubani, a 200 level Business Administration student who hails from Umuakpor Ovungwo in Isiala Ngwa South LGA, Abia State.

Sharing a photo of some of the kidnapped students, one Daniel Obioma cried out to the Abia State Government to come to their aid.

"We are calling on the government on speed intervention on Absu okigwe road.
