Bandits abduct Dangote Cement workers



Gunmen have reportedly kidnapped scores of Dangote Cement workers who were returning from work on Monday.

The hoodlums also shot several workers during the bloody attack on Monday evening after they were ambushed at Okpella area of the state.

Witnesses who spoke said it was unclear how many people were wounded or the severity as of Monday evening.

“Other people are in the bush. My colleague has bullet wounds. A coaster bus filled with staff was attacked at Okpella, Edo State, by kidnappers,” a witness said.

“They kidnapped our whole staff bus. Kidnappers took our staff.”

Meanwhile, the spokesperson for Okpella Cement Plc, Michael Odofin, has confirmed the attack and abduction of the company’s workers.

Although he didn’t provide details of the incident, he simply said, “I cannot give any details right now but our workers were attacked. The attack is still fresh. We have no one killed.”

However, efforts to speak with the Edo State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Chidi Nwabuzor, were unsuccessful as he could not take his calls as at the time of filing this report.
