Mary Olaniyan,a student of Adeyemi College of Education in Ondo state has finally absconded after spending 11 days in kidnapper\’s captivity.It all seemed over when two students of the same institution,Blessing and Mary  who were also abducted were found dead.

Olaniyan,a student of History department said she was abducted by four men who came in a car painted in the state\’s taxi colour outside the school\’s main gate.She said “I boarded the taxi cab alongside a lady at the same location”.Two of the men were going to Yaba in Ondo city and as soon as she boarded the taxi,she fainted.She later found herself in a house inside a thick forest.She said;“We were six in the hands of the captors who fed us only with water.

We saw strange men coming in a jeep vehicle to collect something we suspected to be human flesh which was concealed in a cellophane bag. . . My escape from the hands of the kidnappers was divine. It was while they were quarrelling that I took the opportunity to escape alongside others into the bush. . .

I trekked inside the forest until I got to Ile-Oluji/Ipetu Ijesa road where I met a lady and asked for direction to Ondo town. The lady told me I was very close to Ile-Oluji. When I got to Igbo Oja, I made efforts to reach my mother on her phone. . . I contacted my mother.

My father immediately called me and I informed him that I had reached Itanla junction along Ondo/Akure highway.” The school\’s provost,Olukoya Ogen has since then referred Mary to the College\’s health center for medical care.
