In a chilling encounter, an unnamed nurse from Wuse General Hospital, Abuja, shares her traumatic experience of surviving an abduction by a ‘one chance’ gang. This harrowing incident left her battered and terrified.
In the heart of Abuja, a nurse’s life took an unexpected turn when she fell victim to a ‘one chance’ abduction.
It was a seemingly ordinary evening for the nurse as she concluded her duties at Wuse General Hospital.
Little did she know that her journey home would turn into a life-threatening ordeal. She sought a taxi to Area 1, hoping for a swift and uneventful ride.
The nurse boarded a taxi that already had three passengers—a woman in the front seat and two men in the rear.
As the journey commenced, it became clear that this was not an ordinary ride.
Near the NNPC filling station close to Churchgate, her fellow passengers revealed their sinister intentions.
Without warning, the two men in the backseat seized the nurse, subjecting her to a barrage of blows. Her face and hands bore the brunt of their aggression.
The assailants demanded she lay on the cab’s floor, leaving her helpless and terrified.
As they continued to assault her, the nurse revealed her identity as a healthcare professional at Wuse General Hospital.
In response, her abductors accused her of being associated with a prominent figure, Tinubu.
This association only heightened the gravity of her situation.
Desperation filled the air as the criminals confiscated her belongings—ATM cards, phones, wedding ring, wristwatch, and N5,000 in cash.
To exacerbate her ordeal, they contacted her husband, demanding a staggering N1 million ransom.
The threat loomed ominously—comply, or face dire consequences.
Despite the nurse’s horrifying experience, the ransom was not paid.
Her story is a testament to her resilience and courage in the face of danger.
In light of such alarming incidents, one must question the safety measures in place to protect citizens.
We reached out to the FCT police command for comments on their efforts to combat ‘one chance’ abductions, but our inquiries were met with silence.
