The just released Public Relations Officer of the Edo State Command of the Nigerian Immigration Service, Mrs. Bridget Esene has spoken of how she was sold to some Fulani herdsmen after her kidnap last Sunday.
Mrs. Esene was kidnapped as she entered church for worship service last Sunday.
While expressing her joy on her release, she, however, said that her experience is not one to be wished on anyone saying that she saw hell in the hands of her abductors for the two days that she was held in captivity by the bandits.
Against the background of reports that her relations paid for her freedom, she, however, said that she was freed by the police and vigilante groups.
She said: “The armed men numbering five trailed me to my church at Ikhueniro near Benin city where I kidnapped.
“I was forced into their car and driven out of the church premises by my abductors who later sold me to another set of kidnappers who are suspected herdsmen. I saw hell and l don’t wish my enemy such”. She said that upon sighting the kidnapper, she had attempted to escape but was intercepted at gunpoint by the hoodlums.
Esene stated that the armed men later took her into the forest and some other hardened kidnappers were on ground to receive her. She added: “I was later sold to another set of gunmen who then took me deep into the forest.”
