Men of the Ondo State Security Network codenamed Amotekun Corps have begun combing the forest of Akunu to rescue kidnapped passengers.
Kidnappers, on Friday evening, killed the driver of an 18-passenger bus and abducted all the passengers at Ayere community in Kogi State, a border town with Ondo State.
Sources said a child was left behind inside the bus by the kidnappers.
It was gathered that men of the Ondo Amotekun Corps, hunters and soldiers have stormed the forest with a bid to rescue the victims.
Ondo Amotekun Commander, Akogun Adeleye Adetunji, said operatives of the corps have been deployed to the area even though the incident happened in Kogi State.
