Gunmen have abducted the monarch of Ikuru town in the Andoni Local Government Area of Rivers State, HRM Aarom Ikuru, at his residence on Sunday night.

Also, some boat travellers, including a lecturer at the University of Port Harcourt, who were returning to Port Harcourt from Andoni were kidnapped and whisked away by armed men suspected to be pirates.

Mr Maurice Ikuru, who is the monarch’s palace spokesperson, confirmed his principal’s kidnap on Monday morning. “Yes, it’s true. It happened about 8:30 or 9pm,” he said.

When contacted, spokesman for the State police Command, Nnamdi Omoni, confirmed that some Port Harcourt-bound travellers were kidnapped but was yet to get their identities.

“I can confirm that some persons who were coming back from Andoni were ambushed and kidnapped. Investigation is ongoing to get the details,” Omoni stated.
