An eye witness, Mrs.  Udeme (surname witheld), claimed that the kidnappers gained entrance into the house of the victims after tearing the roof.

Another eye witness, Mr. Charles,  said the gunmen made away with their victims despite the initial resistance by some residents in the isolated area known  for its deplorable road network.
