Gbenga Maxwell Ajayi, a 40-year-old Lagos-bound man, who was abducted by ritualists has been released, as their oracle rejected him.
The 40-year-old man, was abducted on his way to Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, on Friday, November 11, 2022, on boarding a commercial vehicle from Ijaye area of Lagos.
The father of four regained his freedom, a day after his abduction, when much attempts to use him for sacrifice failed, as the ritualists charm didn’t work on him.
While narrating, his ordeal, he said he boarded a commercial vehicle whose occupants dozed off having inhaled perfume sprayed by the bus conductor, saying that he can’t give details of what happened in the bus as well.
He said, “But what I noticed was that the conductor was waving money to everyone which resulted in us dozing off.
“I initially sent a message to my travel agent that I wanted to order for a taxi, but I later discharged the rider when he opted for an offline transaction as a result of traffic gridlock.
“I, thereafter, joined a public transport heading to Oshodi. Unfortunately we all dozed off after inhaling the perfume.
“When I woke up, I saw myself and other passengers in a very fine apartment. But we all looked dizzy with white stain on our bodies.
“I heard an old man giving order for my release and that of another person, saying none of us could be used for ritual purposes.
“Immediately, the charms placed on our heads were removed. We were blindfolded and driven to an area later identified as Epe.”
The victim’s brother, Seyi Ajayi, also said Gbenga told them that all the passengers were already clothed in black clothes. Then a man placed a calabash on their heads one after the other.
“He said if the charm worked on the person, he or she would be taken away,” Seyi added.
Recall that Gbenga was declared missing after the person that was supposed to receive him in London said he was not onboard, as he was supposed to travel to London with Ethiopian Airlines whose departure time was by 1:40pm on Friday and to arrive in London 6:35pm on Saturday.
