A man has told how his wife and daughter had a miraculous escape after they were abducted in Lagos.

In a message sent to NewsmakersNG, Chief Eddie Mbajiorgu said his wife and daughter were saved by one heroic motorist.

Mbajiorgu said: “My brothers please join me to thank the Lord for a miraculous escape of my wife, Mrs Mildred Mbajiorgu from the hands of the three kidnappers who bundled her from her car in front of Peaceland Estate, Abijo, in the company of my daughter.

“As they drove off with her, my daughter raised the alarm. On the way, she attempted to jump out from the car which attracted an uncoming vehicle.The vehicle began chasing the kidnappers and hit their vehicle, which made them accelerate more, leading to their front tire bursting and there was collision with other cars. So that led to the miraculous escape of my wife.

“Two out of the kidnappers were caught at Oribanwa area of lbeju Lekki .They we’re almost being lynched except for the arrival of the Police. My wife is presently hospitalised with bruises on the eye, arm and shoulder. May the name of Christ our Lord be praised.”
