Victims Of Ibadan House Of Horror Recount Experience

Some of the inmates of the house of horror at Soka Ibadan recounts their experience
What is your name?
Nafiu Shittu
Where do you come from?
I am from Isale-Osun, Osogbo. I live in the Foko area of Ibadan city.
Are you married?
 When and how were you kidnapped?
I was kidnapped seven months ago in Ibadan. Some men dragged me into a vehicle. I only remember that I later saw myself chained to the wall in a room. I was held there all alone.
What were you eating in the forest?
I was rarely fed. There were two men who brought food every four days. It was food meant for sacrifice – rice and palm oil. But I couldn’t eat the food, so I drank only water.
Can you describe the people who held you?
The men were hefty and were always smoking in the place. I remember there were two of them. I don’t remember ever seeing a woman among them. On the day we were rescued, there was a lot of noise coming from outside. Before I knew it, some youths broke in, freed me and others who had been held captive.
Do you recall seeing other people there?
Yes. I was not the only one in the place. Everyday, they brought new people there and beat them.  I heard cries from other rooms daily. I don’t know if they were killed later, but I often saw dead bodies taken out.
What is your name and where do you come from?
My name is Titi. I stay in Oke-Ado area of Ibadan.
 How were you kidnapped?
I was just relaxing in front of my house when I was seized by some men and whisked into a vehicle. They took all my belongings.
When were you kidnapped?
About two months ago.
Where were you kept?
I was locked up in a room with other women.
Do you know what happened to the other women? Were they molested?
I don’t know what happened to them. I did not see what happened to them. But the men would come and beat us. Later, they would bring food. But I never liked the food.
What were you fed with?
I can’t remember. I just remember that I didn’t like what we were being fed with. The food we were given was terrible. So, I rarely ate it.  But they did not bring the food all the time. One of the guards used to bring me soft drinks and bread every four days. I had N9,000 on me when I was kidnapped. But they took it from me. I don’t want to talk anymore.
