A student of Adeyemi College of Education, Ondo, Oluwaseun Mary Olaniyan who was abducted eleven days ago has escaped from the kidnappers’ den.

Hope had been lost, when other two students of the institution, Oladepo Blessing and Oluwasemilore Mary who were kidnapped earlier were found dead.

Olaniyan, a history student said she was kidnapped by four men in a vehicle painted in the state taxi colour at about 6.30pm outside the main gate of the institution. She said, “I boarded the taxi cab alongside a lady at the same location.
Two of them were going to Yaba in Ondo city. As soon as I boarded the vehicle, I became unconscious. I later found myself in a building located inside a thick forest. .

We were six in the hands of the captors who fed us only with water. We saw strange men coming in a jeep vehicle to collect something we suspected to be human flesh which was concealed in a cellophane bag.

My escape from the hands of the kidnappers was divine. It was while they were quarrelling that I took the opportunity to escape alongside others into the bush.

I trekked inside the forest until I got to Ile-Oluji/Ipetu Ijesa road where I met a lady and asked for direction to Ondo town. The lady told me I was very close to Ile-Oluji. When I got to Igbo Oja, I made efforts to reach my mother on her phone.

I contacted my mother. My father immediately called me and I informed him that I had reached Itanla junction along Ondo/Akure highway.” The provost of the College, Olukoya Ogen has since referred Adeniyan to the College Health Centre for immediate medical attention.
