They dragged the driver out, but she stated they took her with them as they drove away.


When they arrived in the jungle, they asked Ojo to cooperate and inquired about her name and father’s name.

She claimed that they told her to start running because she didn’t know where she was.

“I saw one bring out a rifle and the other bring out a combat axe,” she said. When the driver was pulled out, they shoved my face against the window, and I had no idea where they were going.

“When they arrived in the bush, they took me down, inquired about my name, and requested that I collaborate.

“They later told me not to look back and to run. I encountered an elderly woman who directed me to a route.
