A 40-year-old female victim of kidnappers in Kwara, Funmilayo Olatunji, has recounted her miraculous escape from the den of kidnappers.

Funmilayo, who was abducted alongside two others, luckily escaped from the kidnappers barely hours after her abduction.

The three victims were abducted two weeks ago on Sunday at Eju town near Obbo-Ile, in Ekiti Local Government of the State.

“We were seated outside the house with one Pastor Tope of the Winners Church, at about 7 am, when four gunmen approached us asking if they could get cigarettes to buy.

“I responded by telling them, we don’t sell cigarettes and suddenly they brought out their AK-47 rifles.

“Immediately, I dropped my headphone under the chair I was sitting, with my handbag, but they were able to carry my handbag which contained some personal items.

“Just as the drama unfolded, another victim, a 20-year-old female called Blessing Jacob, strayed in and the three of us were abducted at gunpoint and marched into an unknown forest amid torture,” she told Daily Post in an interview on Sunday.

Funmilayo disclosed that when they got to the forest, the gunmen then requested a ransom of N10m from each of the three victims.
