Unknown gunmen in army uniform have reportedly abducted three teachers of Ohorhe Secondary School in Uvwie Local Government Area of Delta State.
It was gathered that the gunmen stormed the school premises in a Highlander jeep on Tuesday afternoon, before heading to the taff room with guns and abducting three teachers.
An eyewitness said: “I was in the village. I was sitting with my two brothers. I am not living here. I came for a visit. The next minute, what we heard was: kidnappers, kidnappers.
“So we ran to the school, but the kidnappers have already gone. The teachers explained that some gunmen came into the school in army uniform.
“They abducted three teachers. When our community boys heard the shout of kidnappers, they started running towards the direction of the school, but the kidnappers pointed gun at them.
“They started shouting to draw attention as the school is close to the road. Before others came, the kidnappers were already gone”.
When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer for Delta State command, DSP Onome Onovwakpoyeya, confirmed the abduction of the teachers, saying the “action was carried out in commando style.”
This is coming a week after unknown gunmen killed a Benue university lecturer, and two other persons at Plateau market.
