Sept 14, 2012 – My Miraculous Escape From The Hands Of Ritualists In Benin City
Grace Ayetan, a 20-year-old 1st year student of the Institute of Health And Technology over the weekend narrated her ordeal in the hand of some ritualists in Benin city, Edo State Nigeria. naijagists.com
According to Grace, she took a bus from Ring Road to her school with other passengers in the vehicle.
On getting to Five Junction, the passenger bus suddenly stopped and the conductor went to pour water into the over-heating radiator.
She claimed that was her last conscious memory.
Her detail story below:
We all fell asleep. “When another passenger, a woman, woke us up later, the bus was in the bush.
“We started shouting, but the driver and the conductor brought out a gun and told us to be quiet.
“They took us to an underground house in the forest and put us into different rooms. They chained us and hung our bags around our necks. We went without food and water for days.
“After beheading a woman and her baby, a fight ensued between the ritualists over what to do with the rest of us. In the process, a bunch of keys fell from one of them.
“The fight drew the attention of the guards at the main entrance who took the parties into a room to settle the dispute.
“That gave one of us the opportunity to pick the keys and unlock the chains. That was how we escaped.”
She said a good Samaritan aided their escape out of the forest into Benin city.
“Be very careful the kind of commercial vehicles you board“: Grace advised the general public
