In IGANDO: Victim Recounts Horrid Experience In Kidnappers Den

INSIDEMAINLAND – A woman identified as Sodiq Rukayat has narrated how she escaped from a group of suspected ritual killers, who abducted her alongside her 9-month-old baby for ritual purposes in Lagos.

Rukayat was abducted on Tuesday, January 10, 2023, opposite a hospital at Ola Salami Street, Igando in the Igando-Ikotun LCDA of Alimosho LGA.

While narrating her ordeal, she said, “On Tuesday, I went to the clinic to get immunisation for my child at Ola Salami in Igando. When I was done in the hospital, I stood outside to take a bike. Suddenly a commercial tricycle parked in my front and ordered me to enter. I declined; I told the man that I wanted to take a bike because Keke (tricycle) cannot get to where I was going.

“The man insisted that I should enter; that was the last thing I could remember. The tricycle immediately turned and took me away, along with two others that were already inside.

“As we were going, they moved us into a commercial bus painted in the Lagos colours, where we met many people sleeping. Immediately we entered the bus, my 9-month-old baby started crying. They asked me to remove my headscarf; they collected my earrings and all my belongings.

“They also collected my baby from me and covered her mouth with a handkerchief in a bid to stop her from crying, but all was to no avail. Then they threatened to kill my baby.

“A lady among them suggested that they should drop my baby before they would be exposed because of her cry. She said there is a sign on the child’s body while a guy responded that they should drop me along to prevent the baby from being an orphan.

“They dropped me with my baby somewhere that I don’t even know. They gave me back my phone and #100 to recharge my phone so as to contact my family.

“I was there for a while, just holding my baby. After a while, I bought a recharge card and called my husband who told me to ask people where I was. That’s how I found out I was in Mile 2. My husband’s friend later came around to pick me up.”
