Najeebah, one of the six sisters of the Al-Kadriyar family kidnapped by bandits in the Bwari area of Abuja on 2 January released on Sunday has narrated her ordeal and that of her siblings in the custody of their abductors.

But she said she was able to go through it with the mercy of God.

Najeebah who suggested that a ransom was paid to kidnappers to free them also lamented that one of her uncles was shot dead on the day they were abducted as she learnt after they were freed.

She also lamented how they were made to walk long distances on the day they were freed.

She added that she was very happy that she and her sisters were not molested by the kidnappers contrary to the fears of many.

But in her post, Najeebah said the kidnappers appeared to be against molesting their female captives.

She tweeted: “On Friday, we walked from 10am till the next 4am or even later. They wouldn’t let us rest, they wouldn’t let us drink water.

“We only got to drink water around 10am yesterday (Saturday) morning. At a point, I almost gave up; I almost asked them to just kill me.

“But then I was like I can’t leave my sisters here. I kept thinking: we’ve paid the ransom, why won’t they let us go?

“Then yesterday (Saturday), I was like my Rabb (Allah), if we actually leave this place today, I will never doubt how great and amazing you are. I don’t think anyone understands how I feel right now.

“Allah really said: ‘I’m always listening, my answers might not be the way you like it, but I’m always listening so be patient.’

“I’m soooo in awe, I’m still in awe wallah. Subhannallah, Allah truly is the greatest. Allah’s blessings were there in every way.
