Celebrating her freedom, 43-year-old trader, Christiana Gbadamosi has narrated her ordeal in captivity for about 13 days.
Gbadamosi was kidnapped on June 22, 2013, in Ikorodu, Lagos State, has was released June 28 after the kidnappers had demanded N25m ransom from her husband, Mufutau.
“On that fateful day, I was heading to my shop at Ayangburen Road, near Oba Palace, Ikorodu, around 8am,” she said.
“The area was quite deserted and all of a sudden, some men sprayed something into my eyes, whisked me into their vehicle and drove away. They continued to drive for hours without saying a word. So, I thought they wanted to kill me and use me for money ritual.

“After some hours, they pulled me out of the vehicle and took me into an uncompleted building. The building is built like a boy’s quarters and about three women were there to receive me. They put me into a room and locked me inside.”
She said she was not allowed to speak with two other female victims she met in the and was fed bread for 13 days.
“On the first day I got there, I was given bread and water but I refused to eat it because I thought it had been poisoned. However, after some days, I began to eat the bread because I believed if they wanted to kill me, they could as well shoot me. They gave me bread and butter or bread and akara throughout my stay,” she said,
“I saw two other female victims there and they looked pale as if they had been there for a long time. We were not allowed to communicate because we were locked in separate rooms but in the mornings, we were allowed to bathe at the same time so I used to see them.
“Apart from the bread, they left some yellow garri and water in my room which I was allowed to take anytime. I did not drink the garri.”
