The man with the handle @groovereben shared photos of his wife with bruised bodies and almost disfigured faces in a thread shared on his Twitter handle, and wrote

“The level of arm robbery and kidnapping in Lagos is frightening. On Tuesday evening, I boarded a korope (minibus) from Sandfill; upon entering the bus, she sensed something was amiss; she requested that the driver drop her; he refused, instead increasing the speed.

The person seated next to her insisted on closing the door; she refused, dragging the door with them and shouting while still dragging the door. They pushed her down somewhere near the civic center.

I want to thank the good Nigerian who rushed her to Onikan Health Centre, as well as the security guards, nurses, and doctors at Onikan Health Centre for providing her with first aid treatment before we arrived.

We were transferred from Onikan Health Centre to Marina General Hospital. I’d also like to thank the nurses and doctors for their kindness. Dear Governor @jidesanwoolu, please take action to stop the high-level kidnapping in.

@BenHundeyin @Princemoye1 @PoliceNG Kidnappers have taken over the route from Ozumba Mbadiwe down to Epe, so the police monitor team should be increased. I’m going to have to pay over $600,000 for the treatment my wife received during this traumatic event.

I’m thankful to God that my wife is still alive. I’ve considered all the things that could go wrong if they succeeded, and the fact that she didn’t hit her head or chest on the ground. Thank you, Jesus Christ, my Lord and Saviour. Please be cautious out there.”
