“My father is not too strong, so my sister had to keep everything away from my father. Two people were killed right in front of me (Philip and one other girl) because they couldn’t meet up with their demands and the other three people were released after the payment of N2,000,000 ransom each.
“They didn’t kill me 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 to pay N2,000,000. Even at that, from the 26 June 2021, every night they beat me and I was raped by two of them.”
The survivor said she was dropped off at night at Four Corners Junction near Agbani in the Nkanu West Local Government Area of Enugu State.
She said she was admitted to a hospital, adding that she was traumatised by the experience and the execution of two of the victims.
“I can’t take Philip and that girl they killed off my head. They killed and cut them into pieces. Where they kept us, I can still recognise how the place looks like. When they wanted to drop me after my sister paid, they met the police on their way and the police didn’t bother to look inside the car. They just let them through. Oh my goodness God! They also took everything I had left in my account, which was about N268,000. Nigeria has failed me. I sleep and wake up with this traumatic experience and feel like committing suicide,” she added.
Efforts by PUNCH Metro to speak to the victim and ascertain her condition were abortive, as she did not respond to a message from our correspondent.
The Enugu State Police Public Relations Officer, Daniel Ndukwe, said he could only comment on the case after getting details of the kidnap.
He said, “Where in Enugu did the incident happen? Let’s know the name of the person, where it happened and the date and time. It will help. When you get this information, please send it to me.
