Kidnappers in Rivers now disguise as commercial taxi drivers

The Rivers state police command has alerted members of the public that kidnappers in the state have devised ignoble means of disguising as commercial taxis to lure victims into their vehicles and abduct them.
A statement signed by Ahmad Muhammad, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state read: “It has come to the notice of the Rivers State Police Command that some criminal minded people have now resorted to disguising as commercial motorists thereby deceiving unsuspecting commuters.
“They more often than not take passengers along the roads instead of designated and approved motor parks with such passengers apparently end up being kidnapped.
“Consequently, commuters using public transport especially those in the habit of boarding vehicle along the roads are hereby advised to be self security conscious and forthwith desist from such dangerous attitude as boarding vehicle inside designated motor parks is believed to more secured.
“Members of the public are to note that their personal safety and security starts with them. Should they suspect something, the following police distress lines can be useful, 08032003514, 08028915460, 08028915462 and 08160723892, please.”
This warning is coming on the heels of the recent spate of kidnappings in the state, especially in the south south region, where a lot of people have been recently found dead after being abducted by unknown abductors through devious means.
