Bisola Ajayi, the kidnapped female lawyer who recently regained freedom has revealed that her abductors had concluded plans to kill her before the intervention of the police.
The 25-year-old was rescued along with another kidnap victim, Paul Nyulaku, a staff of the British High Commission, Abuja, in Etche local government area of Rivers state.
She made the disclosure while speaking with journalists at the state police headquarters in Port Harcourt.
The lawyer narrating her ordeal said some of the kidnappers were violent as they kept beating her, while others noted that when the ransom was paid, she would be set free.
“They initially demanded for N50million but the next day, they increased it to N200million because of the attention my kidnap attracted.
“They were planning on how to kill me because they knew that as the news went round, pressure will be on them. They were actually planning yesterday (Wednesday) night to move me into the swamp to kill me. The Police came just in time because all I was doing was to pray.”
The state commissioner of police, Joseph Mukan, on his part, said one of the kidnappers was wounded and the other one tasked with watching over the victims was arrested during the rescue operation.
He called on residents to be security conscious and report anybody with gunshot wounds to the nearest police station.
