The GRADUATE of accountancy from the Delta State Polytechnic, Orozo, was on her way to Abuja from Lagos when she was abducted last week.
Grace spoke to Northern City News and describes the experience as one she wouldn’t want to experience again.
“We slept on grasses deep into the forest. The distance from the road to where we were kept was about three hours. They fed us once daily with roast yam and dirty water, that is by 2pm. I had to take it and pray because I had no choice than to accept the food and water. We were very hungry but we kept our hope in God that we would be set free on day”.
“They were holding cutlasses, speaking Fulani and Hausa languages. It was only one of them that managed to speak incoherent English. Three of us were KIDNAPPED that evening, but on the third day, they abducted a man and a woman. I was released when they were brought.”
Her father, Francis had paid N200,000 to secure her freedom. According to him, his wife who took the money to the KIDNAPPED a went to their hideout to secure their daughters release.
“I couldn’t pay the N10m ransom.But by the special grace of God, we paid N200,000 to release her hence the N10m wasn’t forthcoming.”
