A bunch of travellers have escaped kidnappers along the Abeokuta-Ibadan Expressway.
The incident, which has since sent panic among users of the popular road, was said to have happened this week.
“It happened at the junction before Okere,” driver of the bus said in a video circulating on the Internet.
“They told us to park and come down. Immediately we came down, they brought out knives and asked us to empty our pockets. They took everything from me and the passengers in the vehicle.
“They weren’t in cars, and they were with guns,” he insisted.
The driver also said that he knew the path that the kidnappers took the people through, and explicitly stated that he knew who they were.
“They were Fulani,” the driver claimed.
Another traveller said, “I just escaped kidnappers on Abeokuta Expressway. Thank God for my life. They kidnapped some people.”
He showed his car in the video, which was damaged with the side mirror broken.
“They were not thieves. They took some people away,” another person said.
