I was kidnapped, put inside the boot and later freed.” How did it happen and how much ransom did she pay? These needed to be ascertained. So, AMEN Super News took her to the front of the Church where they interviewed her. During the interview that ensued, she began her story:
“My name is Amaka Anthony from Mgbowo in Awgu LGA of Enugu State. It was around 12′ O’clock as I was driving at Mission Avenue, Coal Camp that I saw one ENTRACO bus, and cleared for them to pass, not knowing they were armed robbers. So, the bus stopped and four boys alighted from it and rushed to me. In my mind I thought they were towing car people and I was saying,
Did I commit any offence? They started shooting their guns, collected my car keys, put me through the back of the car into the boot and drove off. They used laptop bag and covered my face and told me I shouldn’t make a noise and that if I do, they will shoot me. They went to several places to rob people. At about 4:30, they had robbed up to 12 different places. So, when I now pleaded with them that I was pressed and want to ease myself, they said that, if I repeat it they will shoot me. I now kept my mouth shut and was calling blood of Jesus, God of Adoration.
“To my greatest surprise”, she continued with her face still filled with shock, “they now drove toward Umuchigbo in Emene, near the Adoration new site, I told them that I believe that God will not allow them to kill me. They said that they are children of God and that was why they were passing through that new adoration site.
They now passed there and went to one place that I didn’t know because I was inside the boot and stopped. At any where they had stopped previously, they would collect the key from the ignition and position two men to look after me. Now when they stooped this time, they started shooting guns there asking the people to open their gate. One of them inside the car alighted, because my car is Honda CRV, I now noticed from the boot that they left the key at the ignition. From that boot, I jumped to the front seat, put the ignition on with trembling, and drove off. That was how I escaped them. They collected my Phone in the process but I intend to do a welcome back. The phone no is 08038444141.
