According to them- “On Tuesday, July 20, 2021, the Kidnapers sent us to go and fetch firewood from a forest very close to where they kept us. As we were going, we noticed that they were not monitoring us; So we decided to use the opportunity to escape to the Rijana community along Kaduna – Abuja highway.”
