A 46-year-old woman, Adeola Dawodu,who was kidnapped in front of her estate, is advising worshipers going home from vigils to be careful and wait until dawn.
A mother of four, Adeola was kidnapped on Jan. 20 and held captive for six days before her rescue.
“I left my church, Foursquare Gospel Church, Rumuobiakani, around 5 a.m. on January 20 after a vigil service. I drove through Okporo Road and headed to my residence at RD road. When I arrived RD road, I felt uneasy because the area was in complete darkness. I got to the entrance of my estate and beeped my car horn for security to open the main gate.
“After five minutes of waiting; the gate was opened, and as I attempted to drive in, a man in army camouflage came and pointed a gun at me. He asked me to roll down my window and I refused. As I tried to drive through; the man broke the side glass and hit me so hard with the butt of the gun that I started bleeding profusely.”
She was blindfolded and taken to an uncompleted building in an isolated area after about two hours drive, and N50 million ransom demanded.
“They told me that they had killed several of their victims who refused to cooperate and others that ransom was not paid.”
Thankfully, she was rescued by the army and DSS.
