A Nigerian woman has taken to Twitter to share a horrifying experience of how she landed in the hands of kidnappers after entering a ‘one chance’ bus.
The Twitter user @Blessedcindy said she was travelling from Enugu to Rivers State, unaware that the bus she boarded was operated by kidnappers.
Cindy said she dozed off in the bus and woke in a location with others, realising she had been kidnapped.
She said their abductors asked for the contact of their family members and called each contact for ransom.
According to the victim, her sister took long in raising the money because she had to sell off her properties. While they waited for the money, she said she was beaten and raped by two of her abductors.
After the ransom of 2 million Naira was paid, she said that the abductors also took all the money in her account before dropping her off.
She also claimed that while the kidnappers were taking her to drop her off after ransom was paid, they passed police officers who allowed the kidnappers to continue on their journey without looking inside the car.
She shared a photo of her bruised face and revealed she’s receiving treatment in the hospital.
Read her narration below…
“On 23rd June I was traveling from Enugu to Rivers State I entered a wrong bus at the park, the last thing I can remember very well was texting my sister that I was already on my way, after that I heard a something cold on my noise and I dozed off.
And woke up where there’s only but one bungalow and 6 of us tied to a chair immediately I knew I have been kidnapped. There was this guy sitting down with a gun looking at us without saying a word until one huge looking man came out of the bungalow and started telling us to pray first with a hot slap.
After that, he then told us that we have been kidnapped, and we should not be afraid that as soon as our relatives cooperate with them nothing’s going to happen to us.
He asked the first person his name and who to call. The guy’s name was Philip, Philip said he doesn’t have anyone to call that he is just a normal business man trying to make needs, they skipped him and said he wasn’t ready to cooperate yet.
Long story short now reached my turn it’s only my sister I can call which they did and they told my sister if she likes, she should go and tell the police or army that there’s nothing they can do (that was when I knew my own has finished), they told my sister that she’ll pay N3,000,000 or she won’t see me again, my father is not too strong so my sister had to keep everything away from my father.
Fast forward to Philip and others, 2 people were killed right in front of me (Philip and One girl) because they couldn’t meet up with their demands and the other 3 people were released with 2M each.
The reason why they didn’t kill me was because my sister was picking up calls even after a week and cooperating with them, my sister had to sell some things and borrow up and down to pay 2M and on top of that right from 26th every night I eat beating, and get raped by two of them.
When my sister Paid the money I was dropped off at 4 corners near agbani at night, I am currently in a hospital receiving treatment which, I am so traumatized, I need help.
I can’t take Philip & that girl they killed off my head. They killed and cut them into pieces.
Where they kept us, I can still recognize how the place looks like even when they wanted to drop me after my sister paid, they saw police on their way and police didn’t look inside the car at all, they just free then to move. Oh my Goodness God.
They also took everything I had left on my account which was about #268,000 they withdrew it all.
Aaaah Nigeria has failed me, I sleep and wake up with this traumatic experience and feel like committing suicide. I am scattered.”
