The GIG bus reportedly left Umuahia in Abia State at 7:30 a.m on Saturday on its way to Abuja, the nation’s seat of power.

Meanwhile, the Kogi State Police Command which confirmed the incident through the command’s spokesman, William Ayah, in a Monday statement, said the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of the area, local vigilantes, and hunters have been combing the bush to rescue the victims.

He said the incident involved the GIG bus with 12 passengers and a Sienna bus belonging to ABC Transport with two occupants.
