A Nigerian, simply identified as Adenrele, with the Twitter handle @blastedup, has narrated his ordeal in the hands of some suspected kidnappers on his way to his village in Ondo state.
Kidnapping has been on an alarming rise in different parts of the country in recent times, a situation President Muhammadu Buhari vowed to deal with as he begins his second term.
Note that many cases of kidnapping reported recently have been usually linked with herdsmen as the perpetrators.
Adenrele's story is, however, different as, according to him, he and other involved family members were rescued by a group of herdsmen, after being kidnapped and tied up by some 'hefty' men.
