The kidnappers spoke Yoruba and on getting to the forest tied the abducted pupils separately with ropes after which they left them and went away.

Before leaving, one of the kidnappers speaking in Yoruba said “that their lives will soon end inside the bush”. Kehinde, one of the abducted pupils struggled to untie herself with her teeth, after which she untied her her friend.

They immediately fled and without knowing where they were going for over two hours inside the thick forest. The two kidnapped secondary school girls eventually got to a main road unknown to them. Upon enquiry from passersby, they were told the road was an expressway in Oyo town.

Respite came the way of Kehinde because she is an indigenes of Oyo, but does not know how she could locate the family’s house. They saw a food vendor’s shop and stopped over, where Kehinde requested for a mobile phone to contact her parents in Abeokuta and to let them know their whereabout.

Out of sympathy for the abducted pupils’ story, the food vendor released her phone to Kehinde who called both her parents and that of her friend. The father of Kehinde responded by sending a number which his daughter would call in the town who can come to their aid.

Alhaji Ogunsola rushed to where the abducted girls were and took them to the Palace of the Alaafin of Oyo to report the strange event which had happened to the kidnapped students.

When the information reached the Alaafin, he immediately directed that the Directorate of State Security Service ( DSS) be informed immediately, while the abducted children be given food, a place to refresh and medical attention given the traumatic experience they had in the hands of the kidnappers.
