Mrs. Otiti Esegba

A 76 year-old woman met with good fortune after she was able to escape from the men who kidnapped her in Delta State on Monday.

Otiti Esegba, managed to evade her captors and run for dear life about 5 hours after she was forcefully taken by her abductors in the early hours of the morning.

The kidnappers were reportedly 5 in number and seized the aged grandmother at the Akperhe community in Olomu kingdom in the Ughelli South Local Government Area of the state.

Nigerian Eye reports:

Mrs. Esegba is the mother of the Managing Director of Ben-Segba Technical Services Limited, an oil servicing firm in Ekpan.

Mrs. Esegba, whose pleas to the kidnappers to free her fell on deaf ears, said she began to pray that God should make the two kidnappers guarding her to fall asleep. She said they actually fell asleep. That was when she ran.

The other three had left to go and abduct more victims, saying they needed more money.

She told our source “At about 2a.m., while I was asleep, I heard a deafening noise but before I knew it, two heavily armed men stormed into the house and seized me after pulling down my door.
“Three others, also armed, joined them and ransacked the house, took my jewelries, my clothes and money. They started beating and hitting me with guns.

“Thereafter, I was dragged onto one of the waiting motorcycles, popularly known as okada. One sat behind me and the three others took the other okada. The one seated behind me held my mouth and I was blind-folded.”

When she escaped, a fisherman took her in.

She said: “He took me to his home at a place I later found out to be Oviri-Olomu, after hearing my story.
“At his home I found out that he was married to my niece. They clothed me as I was almost naked.”
“This man called my people at Akperhe at 6a.m. They came and alerted Oviri community leadership. That is my story.”
