Seven maritime travelers have reportedly been kidnapped along the Onne estuary, in Rivers state. Reports say the incident occurred on Monday as the unsuspecting travelers set out to Port Harcourt by boat.

The public relations officer of the rivers state police command, Grace Iringe-Koko, confirming the incident, said 20 passengers were onboard the boat.

According to the spokesperson, it’s not yet clear if the seven kidnap victims were specifically targeted or randomly picked up.

“Yes the O.C Marine informed me that a boat carrying 20 passengers from Bonny to Onne was intercepted by daredevil sea pirates along the Onne River where they were robbed before 7 of them were abducted and taken to an unknown destination,” she said.

The passengers were heading to Onne from Bonny and were intercepted by sea pirates along the Onne River, where they were robbed before seven of them were abducted and taken to an unknown destination.

The rivers state police command said they are investigating and will provide further information when necessary.
