A Nigerian man residing in Lagos state has raised alarm after his wife was almost abducted by suspected kidnappers along the ever-busy Ozumba Mbadiwe road on the Island on Tuesday, June 28.
In a thread shared on his Twitter handle, the man with the handle @groovereben, shared photos of his wife with her bruised body and almost disfigured face and wrote
”The level of arm robbery and kidnapping going on in Lagos is scary. On Tuesday evening my boarded a korope (mini bus) from Sandfill, on entering the bus she sensed something wasn’t right, she asked the driver to drop her, he refused but rather increased the speed
The person seated next to her insisted on closing the door, she refused, she started dragging the door with them and started shouting and was still dragging the door with them. When got to somewhere around civic centre they pushed her down
I want to thank the good Nigerian who rushed her to Onikan Health centre, I also want to thank the security men, the nurses and doctors at Onikan health centre for giving her first Aid treatment before we arrived.
From Onikan health centre we were transferred to Marina General hospital. I also want to appreciate the nurses and doctors for being kind to us. Dear governor @jidesanwoolu please do something about the high level kidnapping going on in .
@PoliceNG @BenHundeyin @Princemoye1 increase the police monitor team from Ozumba Mbadiwe down to Epe, kidnappers have taken over that route. I’m going to be paying over 600k for the treatment my wife sustained in this traumatic event.
I’m grateful to God my wife is alive, I’ve thought about all the things that could go wrong if they succeeded, the fact that she didn’t hit her head or chest on ground, Thank you my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Ya’ll please be careful out there.”
