A gang of armed robbers allegedly led by a female who posed as a nurse, has reportedly snatched an 18-seater Hiace bus belonging to a Benin-based private commercial transport company, Agbonifo Line.
Narrating his ordeal in the hands of the robbers from his hospital bed where he is being treated for injuries he sustained from the robbers' attack, the driver of the bus, Anthony Nwaosa, said the suspect chartered the bus from the company's park at Ekpoma, Esan West local government area of Edo state and informed the driver that she wanted to go and convey computers her husband imported from abroad.
"I was in Ekpoma at our park between the hours of 10 am and 11am last week Thursday when a lady approached me that she wanted to charter my bus to a village near Agbor. We agreed for a fee of N40,000. I met my manager at Ekpoma to confirm from my MD if I should embark on the trip or not and he agreed.
The Managing Director of the transport Company, Festus Agbonifo, who corroborated the driver's account, said he suspected foul play between his manager at Ekpoma and the female robber, because, according to him, no receipt indicating the identity of the girl was issued by the company's manager before allowing the chartered bus to embark on the journey.
Agbonifo who said the matter had been reported at Igbanke and Abudu Divisional Police Station, called on security agencies to apprehend the robbers.
