Daredevil gunmen have launched fresh attacks on travellers in Ondo State, kidnapping 18.
According to reports, the victims were abducted on Wednesday night along the Ifira-Akoko/Idoani road in Akoko South East Local Government Area of the state.
The abductors were said to have fired gunshots into the air to scare the passengers before taking them into a nearby forest.
The Commander of Ondo State Security Outfit, codenamed Amotekun, Adetunji Adeleye, confirmed the incident on Thursday.
Adeleye, however, said 14 of the victims have been rescued by men of the agency while efforts are ongoing to rescue the rest.
Meanwhile, neither the Ondo State Government nor the Police Command have confirmed the attack.
