According to Jumbo, out of the eight kidnapped persons, five were members of the maritime union in Kula, Akuku-Toru Local Government Area headed to Port Harcourt for a meeting.
“The Kula unit and Abomema unit (of martime workers union) were asked to come for a meeting in the state office here in Port Harcourt, this morning (Monday).
On their way from Kula, we got a complaint (report) that the officials who were coning for the meeting were kidnapped.
All the passengers were kidnapped, including three others in the boat. Up till now, nobody has heard anything from the kidnappers.
