A mother of three on Sunday disclosed how she managed to escape from Boko Haram members who sent her on “God’s mission” to bomb a popular market in Kano state.
According to The Cable, the woman was allegedly kidnapped while on her way to a hospital in Maiduguri, Borno state.
Narrating her ordeal to reporters at the Kano Government House, the woman said:
“On our arrival in Kano, the vehicle (in which she was conveyed) developed a problem I gained my consciousness and found that my body was strapped with explosive belt.
“It is in the course of repairing the car that I learnt the kidnappers have stripped me of my cloth and explosive devices were strapped on me.”
On discovering this, the woman, who said her abductors sent her on “God’s mission” to bomb the Kantin Kwari Market in Kano, ran before she was found and rescued by security men and taken to Hotoro police station in Kano around 11pm.
Speaking, the Kano state Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, and the state commissioner of police, Abbati Dikko, called on residents of the state to be more security conscious.
