*Abducts two civilians
FOUR Police AK47 rifles are missing in Rivers state after sea pirates Saturday night abducted two civilians along Degema waterways, in the state.
The development which took place in Degema local government area involves an ambush against the four policemen on escort of the kidnapped victims.
Three of the missing firearms were said to have sunk in the rivers as three of the policemen jumped into the rivers to swim to safety.
The fourth person was seized and carted away in the boats as he could not swim.
The victims were reportedly travelling to one of the riverine communities in the area when the hoodlums numbering 12, armed with AK47 rifles in two-speed boats with machine guns ambushed and opened fire on them.
