According to reports, the passengers were abducted from an 18-seater bus at Ochonyi-Omoko village along the Abuja-Lokoja highway in Kogi State.

An eye witness identified as Benjamin Isaac who was fortunate to escape from the gunmen disclosed that the attackers hid in a bush and opened fire on the moving vehicle, deflating the back tyres and forcing the car to a stop.
