Suspects bandits on Wednesday attacked Benin-Abuja bound vehicles.

The hoodlums were a aid to have blocked the road near the National headquarters of Jehovah Witness Organization in Ehor, the headquarters of Uhunmwonde Local Government Area of Edo State.

Passengers were reportedly robbed while commuters fled to safety during the incident.

A passenger who was reportedly caught in the web, lamented the absence of security presence at the vicinity due to rains which started at early hours of Wednesday.

The traveller who preferred to be anonymous, said the hoodlums had field day due to the absence of security personnel occasioned by the rainfall which started before dawn.

One of the victims, who claimed be a member National Youth Corp Service, alleged that he lost his handset and other valuable to the attack.

“As I’m speaking with you now sir, i am in the hospital, though I didn’t sustain severe injury, but my valuables and that of other persons were carted away by the robbers.

“Some of us have cuts at various parts of our bodies, they used cutlass on some of the passengers who could not give them what they wanted.

Traffic on the road convulsed for several hours, causing panic among passengers and commuters.

The Spokesman of the Nigeria Police, Edo State Command, DSP Chidi Uwanbuzor, denied knowledge of the incident during a telephone interview with our Correspondent.
