A 22-year-old SHS graduate who gave her name as Eunice has narrated the chilling ordeal of how she escaped from suspected ritual murderers.
Eunice shared her experience in an interview with Accra-based Rainbow Radio.
She was captured in her house in the Brong Ahafo Region, by a lady who claimed to be working for an orphanage, SOS, and needed assistance from her.
Narrating how the incident occurred, Eunice said she was washing on that day when her parents asked her to prepare them breakfast before they left for a funeral in another town.
According to her, after the parents had left, she heard a knock on their gate and upon opening, she saw a lady who claimed she worked with SOS and was seeking assistance from households to assist orphans under their care.
Eunice revealed that the lady requested her to donate clothes she was no longer using so she could hand them over to deprived children.
Touched by their mission, Eunice said she went back to her room, gathered some few clothes and packed them in a polythene bag and handed them over to the lady.
After giving the clothes to the SOS lady, Eunice said she again demanded money to take care of the orphans.
All this while, there were two young men on board a red car parked in front of the gate, and unknown to Eunice, they were accomplices of the SOS lady.
Now, all she felt was someone covering her nose with a handkerchief; an act that made her fell unconscious.
Eunice said she realized she had been kidnapped by the woman and her two male accomplices and had been put in their car.
On their way, Eunice said she could only hear the voices of her kidnappers, and as they approached a police barrier, the lady told her colleagues that they needed to do something about Eunice.
So, they moved her into the car boot.
While in the car boot, Eunice said she became a bit conscious and realised that her sister had sent her a strong worded message slamming her and asking why she had left home in the middle of her chores.
“I was also receiving calls but could not also respond to them as well as the messages because I was not fully conscious. I attempted replying my sister’s message, however, the message went to my father. The kidnappers came to the boot, injected me with a substance and took the phone away from me,’’ Eunice narrated.
She added that the kidnappers after collecting the phone from her, started sending counter messages to her father to confuse him but he had already called her sister, a police officer to report the incident to her.
Eunice said she was taken to a location where she heard a voice suspected to be the ritualist's telling the kidnappers that she was unclean and could not be used for the rituals.
At this point, Eunice who could hear the voices but could not see where she was or the people involved heard one of the men shout ‘’take her back, she is unclean and cannot be used’’.
Her kidnappers then left her in a bush and threw her phone, money and the clothes she gave to the lady back at her and said, ‘’the man said you are clean and so we believe that because you are unclean, anything from you is also unclean.’’
Eunice said she was left in the bush and was told to find her way back home.
But later, the kidnappers came back accusing her of informing her father whom they suspected to be a police officer about the kidnapping and so they wanted to take her back to her own home.
However, the accomplices disagreed with her because they said that could lead to their arrest.
“They later agreed to drop me at a different location. So I gave them a direction to my father’s church but before they took me there, they injected me with a substance which doctors confirmed of being cocaine,’’ Eunice said.
Eunice said she was dropped at her father’s church at Nkawkaw, and the kidnappers drove off.
She was later found by her parents unconscious, and was taken to the hospital where she was treated.
Asked if she could trace where she was taken to, Euncie responded: ‘’I would not be able to recognise the location or the people involved’.”
