Gunmen Attack Boat In Bayelsa, Abandon Passengers In Bush

Some armed men, on New Year’s Eve, hijacked a passenger boat travelling from Yenagoa to Twon-Brass in Brass Local Government Area of Bayelsa State. 

 The gunmen purportedly made away with the 115-horsepower, Yamaha outboard engine of the boat conveying about 14 passengers. They also robbed the passengers of their valuables and dumped them in a bush.

 Confirming the development, the Bayelsa chairman of the Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria, Mr Ogoniba Ipigansi, said on Sunday that the passengers were however left unhurt. 

“The gunmen dumped the driver and the passengers in the bush before carting away the outboard engine,’’ he said. 

 Ipigansi also told newsmen that a rescue team had been dispatched to the scene of the incident.
