While in captivity, I heard the sound of the Police but they could not approach the location I was because it was swampy.

“I was beaten and threatened to be killed. . I stayed there for four days. On the fifth day, we heard sounds of gunshots. Two of my abductors came to where I was kept, brought me out and walked me to a distance.

“They told me to trek down that I would find the farmland, from where I would know my way. They left me there and ran into the bush. That is all I could remember. I want to appreciate the Police for the effort they made towards my rescue”, she narrated.
