Unknown gunmen on Thursday hijacked a school bus in Oba Ile Estate of Akure North Local Government Area of Ondo State.
Although no pupil was on board, the attackers were said to have whisked away an official of the school, who was on her way to pick up pupils from their homes.
A resident who spoke on the development noted that the gunmen who were on motorcycles, rounded up the vehicle around 6:45 am.
The school administrator, Mrs Akindemowo Bolatito, while narrating the incident, said it was a parent who alerted her about the development.
“This morning I got a call from a parent who told me that our driver wanted to speak with me. When I spoke with the driver, he told me that the school bus had been hijacked at gunpoint and Omolayo Ojo, an attendant, was also taken away.”
“He said the gunmen were three on a motorcycle and that one of the residents had informed the police.”
