Taking a chance to live
The men asked him for the numbers of his relatives whom they could contact to demand a ransom, Nantomah said.
While attempting to provide his captors with the phone number they had requested, Nantomah phoned his schoolmates to inform them about his ordeal.
One of the abductors, however, suspected that the victim might have called for rescue instead, so he rushed to verify his suspicion.
Fighting off his captors
It was during the verification effort that Nantomah took a chance to escape from his captors, but not without a struggle with the person who was left to keep a watch over him.
The victim overpowered his captor during the struggle and managed to flee to join his schoolmates.
Nantomah briefly recounted the incident in a video below:
