Description
Unidentified gunmen, yesterday, robbed and kidnapped passengers heading to Oron, in Akwa Ibom State, from Calabar, in Cross River State.

The incident occurred only a few minutes after the speed boat took off from a jetty in Calabar, the state capital.

In a 30 seconds video, one of the victims, a female passenger called on security agencies to come to their rescue.

The female passenger whose face did not show in the video went viral and passionately appealed for help, stressing that they were abandoned in the middle of nowhere by the pirates, who made away with all the male passengers.

“Please if you guys are seeing this video on my status, we need help. Just raise an alarm. I am going to a wedding in Akwa Ibom State when we were robbed, the gunmen came and took all the men (male passengers ) including the boat driver.
“We are just here with a reverend sister, as well as other ladies. Please we need help; we are across the sea; we are at the first branch from the pickup point (probably the Jetty),” the victim said.

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Relations Officer, Irene Ugbo, a superintendent of police confirmed the incident, revealing that the victims have been rescued by security agents.

Ugbo disclosed that there was a swift reaction from the Nigerian Navy and the Marine Police who chased the Pirates and forced them to abandon some of their victims, who were rescued by security operatives. Some were still yet to be rescued as of press time.
