ABC Transport PLC has reacted to posts on the social media about a kidnap incident concerning one of it’s vehicles, clarifying that it was a Toyota Sienna, not “a luxury bus” as erroneously reported, that is involved.

The management of the road transport company said in a statement that the Sienna, going to Abuja from Enugu with a couple on board, was among the vehicles hijacked by gunmen at about 1.30 pm on Saturday, February 3, in Kogi state.

The statement signed by Group Head, Strategy and Innovation,Victor Nneji, assured that the company has been cooperating with the relevant security agencies to resolve the situation, adding that top priority to the management is the wellbeing of the victims.

“What did occur was that at about 1:30pm on Saturday, February 3, 2024, at a Village called Ayele Adumu, in Olamaboro LGA of Kogi State, unknown persons blocked and attacked oncoming vehicles and amongst which was an ABC Sienna en-route Enugu to Abuja with two passengers.

“The two passengers and the bus driver were led into the bush alongside other passengers of other vehicles and have since been held hostage.


“ABC Transport is actively cooperating with relevant security agencies to resolve the matter as swiftly as possible. Our top priority is the safety and well-being of our passengers and crew, and we are taking all necessary measures to ensure a prompt and thorough resolution to the issue at hand.”

On the concerns raised by members of the public as a result of some unconfirmed reports in circulation, ABC Transport urged everyone to rely on official statements from the company for accurate and up-to-date information.

Nneji also disclosed that an ABC Transport team is working tirelessly to provide updates as the situation unfolds, assuring that such reliable and accurate information will promptly be released to the public.

“We appreciate the cooperation of our passengers, stakeholders, and the public in allowing us the time and space to address this matter responsibly. We remain committed to maintaining the highest standards of safety and security for our valued passengers and staff,” the press release said
