An interior designer, Joy Nwachukwu, has shared her kidnap experience in Abuja on Thursday.
Nwachukwu, who tweeted her encounter with the kidnappers, said she boarded a vehicle from Peace Park junction heading to Life Camp, only to find herself in the arms of kidnappers.
She said, “The other guy that entered with me alighted at Airport junction just by the AP filling station. Immediately he got down, they zoomed off. Before I could turn my head I got beaten from left, right and centre, was macheted in my hand, punched directly in both eyes.”
Nwachukwu said she passed out and woke up along the Kaduna Road. A call to her mum saved the day as she (mum) offered to pay them the amount the person who sent them offered.
According to her, a ransom of one million naira was demanded.
After the payment of N400,000, Nwach said that she was dropped off at 2.25am at Life Camp junction and given N2,000 for transport.
While lamenting over her ugly experience, Nwachukwu revealed that she ended at the Trauma Centre, National Hospital, Abuja and reported the matter at the Utako Police Station.
PlatinumPost reports that there has been spike in insecurity in the nation’s capital territory, with many residents losing hard-earned resources to rampaging criminals, who often kidnap for ransom.
