A Nigerian woman who was kidnapped along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway has shared her testimony in the church of how she regained her freedom.

This follows a statement released by the Oyo state police command on Saturday, October 29 highlighting an attempt by the kidnap gang on the major expressway on Friday, October 28.

The Spokesperson of the command, SP Adewale Osifeso said in the statement that the kidnappers carried out their attack along the Dominion University end of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

In her written testimony which was read by her pastor, Yemi Davids of the Global Impact Church on Sunday, October 30, she said:

"I ran into this daredevil gang of kidnappers yesterday afternoon along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway. It was a random swoop as a fisherman would cast his net into the sea. Our vehicles were stopped in front and behind so we could not even reverse. If even we thought of reversing, we were warned that they would open fire. We were instructed to park off the road and that the last person to park and to get out of his car will be killed. True to their words, the last person that got out of his car was shot dead immediately."
