A civil servant with the Niger State Science and Technical School Board Muhammed Kindagi , disclosed he was kidnapped while returning home from a friend’s wedding.
” Immediately we came face to face with the bandit, they ordered us to park our car , and they started shooting in the air before we could even come down.
I was tossed by the bullet on my head. When I started seeing blood, I thought that was the end .
” We trekked for over 24 hours , of which they use to take us out one after the order. That was what we did during the cause of been hold hostage till the next morning, ” Kindagi said .
They gave us contaminated water to drink , while they feed us twice a day , morning and evening.
We were sleeping on the floor in the bush. We were not tied but guns were constantly pointed at our heads and they were beating us constantly.
When we eat in the morning , we won’t eat another one till in the evening , we were made to cook by ourselves.
On getting to their camp, we meet one victim there , on the day of our kidnap we were taken up to a hill , from there we move to a mango tree, then on the third day we were taken to the bush which was our final destination before we were rescued.
All of them where fulani , but they spoke to us in Hausa when asking us for money , then speak fulani within themselves.
There is this useless one who doesn’t care, weather your a man or woman, they beat us with sticks.
They even asked us to forgive them, of which we said we have forgiven them, that they too should forgive us too so that we can go home .
