The Ebonyi PPRO who stated that the incident occurred around the Abia and Imo State axis of the expressway, advised those plying that route to be more vigilant.

This is coming a week after gunmen abducted the prelate of Methodist Church Nigeria, Samuel Uche along the Enugu-Port Harcourt Expressway, in Umunneochi Local Government Area of Abia State.

Uche, however, secured his freedom after a whopping N100 million was raised by the church.
