Lady Reveals How She Escaped Death During Kaduna Crisis

A Nigerian lady, Nanmet Anthony, has told the rather shocking story of how she almost got killed in a really tragic manner during the Kaduna crisis.

She explained that she was not the only one who almost died as other persons were with her when the attack came...

According to Nanmet, they were on the way to drop off a friend who had come to visit when they ran into some thugs heavily involved in the fighting. A series of events happened very quickly after that and they were almost killed.

However, they were saved after staging a daring escape;
"On reaching one house while still driving into the area, we met some men standing by their gate and they asked where we were coming from and going to and we all responded Airforce base. This good Samaritan Muslim family open there gate for us instantly (hmnnn). God bless their wives. They gave me and moma their jalabia (overall).

"It didn't end there cos we thought we had escaped but naaaa, they were still looking for us and the only option was to jump into the next compound through the fence. Thank God the woman we were taking to the train station is also is a Muslim woman so we left her in the first house (only myself, ma Momi Mrs Kutan and Flying officer Sani the driver who is also a Christian) jump into the next compound through the fence.

Hmnn, immediately we left they actually came and was asking for the owners of the car, she told them it belongs to her and they asked of the guy(Flying officer Sani) driving and they told them he went to mosque to pray cos it was almost 6:30pm. They left and came back to that same house again insisting they saw a lady with red skirt and long hair (me), 'where has she entered cos we saw her in the car', but they told them if only I haven't been killed cos I ran out of the car into the area immediately I discovered the place wasn't saved for me. Hmnnn, they entered the house searching for me everywhere but to no avail and they put teargass in the house and left...!

"While waiting for the airforce patrol that were deployed to come and pick us after calling them, (thank God the cowards have gone to pray) even though we heard they said they will come after prayers to search every single house and everyone will do *SALATI* if not na die(hmnn). The God almighty use the man that first hide us to go get police men before they finished their prayers and thank God he brought them in good time and they took us out of the area and on reaching the main road at about 7:30-8pm, Airforce operation yaki were already at the junction trying to reach us that was how the police men handed us over to them and they brought us to the base.

"Finally, Thank God non of us were killed. We only sustain injuries from the broken glasses and the fence climbing.

"To the glory of God we are strong and fine.."
