Gunmen have hijacked a school bus in Ondo State’s Akure North Local Government Area.
While no students were aboard, the attackers reportedly stole a staff member who was heading to pick up students from their homes to take them to school.
Around 6:45am, two gunmen on motorcycles approached the vehicle and rounded it up.
The school administrator, Mrs Akindemowo Bolatito, said it was a parent who alerted her about the incident.
“This morning I received a call from a parent telling me that our bus driver wanted to speak with me. He informed me that the school bus had been hijacked at gunpoint and that Omolayo Ojo, the attendant, had also been taken away.”
“He said the gunmen were three on a motorcycle and that one of the residents had informed the police.”
