Suspected cultists who kidnapped Patience Emmanuel ; a 20- year – old undergraduate in Bauchi State have told her family that they didn’ t need money but the victim ’ s virginity .
The victim ’ s parents had been distraught over her kidnap which occurred four days ago.
The family said Emmanuel , a 100 level Pharmacology student at the Bauchi State University, Gadau , left the house on Wednesday afternoon and her whereabouts unknown since then.
Speaking with journalists on Saturday , the victim ’ s father , Mr Emmanuel Kushi, a retired civil servant , said his daughter was abducted on her way home after visiting his younger brother.
He said , “On Wednesday , June 24, around 2 pm , she left my younger brother’ s house in Rafin Zurfi and told him she was coming to my house at Kafin Tafawa (a distance of about four kilometers ) to pick something and he gave her permission to come.
“ By evening my younger brother’ s wife kept calling her mobile to know if she had arrived but there was no response .
They thought she was already in my house working .
“ Later on, they tried again but the number was switched off .
The next day (Thursday ) around 1 pm , my younger brother’ s wife called me and asked why I delayed Patience and didn’ t let her come back .
She asked if there was any problem .
“ I told her that I didn’ t see Patience because she had not come to my house .
She expressed shock about what I told her and said she would call her friend to confirm . ”
He further explained that his brother’ s wife told him that when she called Patience ’ s friend , he told her that he also tried calling her on Wednesday but her phone rang out .
The father added , “So he sent a text message to her mobile .
Then, a reply came in .
The response read, ‘ Do you think you will ever see her again ?
Fool . ’”
Kushi said he came back from the farm and also saw a text message in his phone sent by the abductors through his daughter’ s number.
The text message , which was forwarded to our correspondent read, “ Father , your daughter is with us (BLACK AXE CONFRETANITY (sic )).
We don’ t need your money what we need is her virginity .
Don’ t bother looking for her . ”
He said that he got another text from the abductors on Saturday morning informing him that she was dead .
