Two School Girls Escape from Kidnappers Den, Shares their Story

Two female secondary school students from Odéwalé Community, Ojulin Abado, Ogun State, who were kidnapped on the way to school on Friday has escaped. They have shared how they escaped from the kidnapper’s den. Below is their story.

The girls, 18-year-old Zainab Rafiu and 16-year-old Kehinde Adeogun explained that a group of three masked men stopped next to them and ordered them to enter the car with AK-47 rifles at gunpoint.

One of the girls said that the kidnappers tied them to a separate tree and threatened to kill them.

“The kidnappers spoke to us in Yoruba and on getting to the forest tied us separately with ropes after which they left us and went away.

“One of the kidnappers speaking in Yoruba said that our lives will soon end inside the bush.

“I struggled to untie myself with my teeth, after which I untied my friend and we started running. We ran for more than two hours inside the forest

“We finally got to the main road but we didn’t know where we were.

“When we asked passersby, they told us the road was an expressway in Oyo town.

“I felt relieved because I am an indigene of Oyo, but I don’t know how I could locate our family house.

“The food vendor gave us her phone, I called my parents and Zainab’s parents. My father sent a relative’s number that I should call the person to come and pick us”.

It is understood that the relative identified as Alhaji Ogunsola picked up the girls and took them to the palace of Alaafin Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi III in Oyo.

The monarch then ordered the State Service to inform the development of the situation, and at the same time provide the kidnapped children with food, a place to rest, and receive medical care due to their traumatic experience at the hands of the kidnappers.

The vanguard learned that the monarch reunited the two girls with Kehinde’s father’s brother on Sunday and took them back to the Agbados border crossing in Ogun State.
