Gunmen have reportedly abducted a yet-to-be-confirmed number of students along the east-west road in the Ughelli area of Delta state.

The students were coming from Calabar, Cross River capital, when their Sienna vehicle was attacked Friday evening.

Bright Edafe, Delta police spokesperson in Delta, confirmed the incident on Monday.

Edafe said the police are currently on the trail of the abductors to rescue the students.

The incident adds to the growing list of abductions of students in the country.
