One of the five persons abducted on their way to the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) around Lagos-Ore express road on Friday and who regained her freedom on Saturday, has revealed that their abductors were Fulani herdsmen.
Vanguard reported that Mrs. Ibelegbu Chidinma, a deaconess from Abia State RCCG 3, gave her testimony during the ongoing minister’s conference on Saturday night.
Chidinma said she prayed that God should allow her captors to fall asleep after which she sneaked out of the kidnappers’ den.
After she successfully escaped, she was the first captive of the abductors that got in contact with the police, before the police later rescued the remaining four.
However, her story further underscored the banditry threat posed by the criminal wing of herdsmen, on a rampage in many parts of the country.
