Despite family members, friends calling for their release, Police say no students were abducted

Despite calls by friends and family for their release, the Rivers State Police Command says the report of the hijack of a bus conveying students in the Ogoni area of the State is false.

Nnamdi Omoni, the public relations officer of the command said Ogoni Communities have enjoyed fragile peace after the arrest and subsequent death of ‘Bobisky” the most dreaded Kidnapper, who was declared wanted by the State Government with a Bounty of #30 million Naira.

Omoni said that preliminary investigation carried out, including interfaces and interviews with the School Authorities revealed that no such thing happened.

“It is also important to note that no family or parents reported a case of a missing person and more importantly that the Polytechnic in question has been on Holidays and only resumed yesterday 1/3/2021 with scanty activities, which clearly negates the online report.

“To that extent, the news should be discountenanced, as the new Commissioner of Police, CP Eboka Friday is irrevocably committed to protecting the lives and property of all the residents of the State while soliciting for the support and cooperation of all and sundry
