Six Catholic nuns were Thursday night kidnapped by unknown gunmen at Agbor town, Ika South Council Area.
It was gathered that the nuns were travelling in a commercial bus when gunmen attacked their vehicle at Railway junction, near Emuhu village.
Nation reports that two persons were shot, but it is unclear whether the victims shot were the nuns or the other passengers in the vehicle.
Meanwhile, two captives escaped from the abductors.
Delta State Police Commissioner, Mustafa Muhammadu, who confirmed the incident, however, assured that the security agencies were on the trail of the kidnappers.
He said security operatives have been combing the area.
