Freed Abuja Abducted Sisters Recount Ordeal in Kidnapper’s Den

Five of the six sisters of the Al-Kadriyar family who recently regained freedom from the den of bandits in the Bwari area of Abuja have narrated their ordeals while in captivity.

The eldest of the six sisters – Nabeeha Al-Kadriyar was, however, killed by the bandits. The remains of the 400-level student of biological science, Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria, were recovered by her parents who picked them up where they were dumped and laid her to rest according to Islamic rites.

The other abducted siblings include: Najeebah Al-Kadriyar (500 level, Quantity Surveying); Nadheerah Al-Kadriyar (300 level, Zoology) both students of ABU; Aneesah and Adeebah

Najeebah who posted on ‘X’, on Sunday after regaining freedom said: “You know 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 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, I was like my Rabb, 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 was there in every way.

“I’m soo happy there wasn’t any molestation cos that was everyone’s greatest fear during the ordeal. Like, they were so against it. I don’t understand why but I counted it as a blessing from my Lord. Ya Dhul Jalal Wal Ikram, Shukran. Your blessings were immense.

“Alhamdulilah. I’m immensely grateful for your prayers and support throughout this ordeal.

This was the greatest test of my life but wallah Allah’s mercy was bountiful as well as it was endless. Thank you all so much

“I still can’t wrap my head around the fact that my uncle actually died that night. I just found out last night. I called and they said he was fine. Inalilahi waina ilaehi raji’un. Ya Allah grant him jannah and forgive his shortcomings. Inalilahi waina ilaehi raji’un.”

Another sister, Nadheerah in a terse post on her personal ‘X’ page said: “Alhamdulillah
