Mrs. Tokoni TrustGod was kidnapped from her home in Yenogoa last week, five men armed with gun and machete invaded her house on Thursday and abducted her.
According to her,
“They broke into the house and asked me if I was Professor Millionaire Ambowei’s sister and I told them that I wasn’t, they said that I was lying and took me away to the water side where they put me in a speedboat.
“When we got to Olagbene their boat had a fault and ran out of fuel when they saw an oncoming boat they fled into the bush and the people in the boat took me and hid me in the neighboring community.
“Shortly afterward the kidnappers who had fixed their boat came to the place I was kept and shot severally threatening to kill the people if I was not produced, so they brought me out and left for the waterside.
“We boarded the kidnappers’ boat again and heard the sound of the Navy gunboat, it was at this point that the kidnappers abandoned their boat, and when the Navy people came I cried out to them that I was the one held hostage.
“They took me in their boat and brought me to Yenagoa,” TrustGod said.
Mrs TrustGod added that Professor Millionaire Ambowei is her husband’s brother.
After the rescue, the Yenagoa Naval Base Commander handed her over to the the Criminal Investigation Department, and Bayelsa Police Command for reconciliation with her family.
