“They took us to a rocky place and allowed me to call and inform my fiancé about my plight. Thereafter, they took the other girl a distance away from me, beside a rock, and slaughtered her.
“As I waited for my turn, I could hear her voice shouting for help. I saw her blood from a distance. As they finished with her and were probably removing some of her organs, the person assigned to keep watch over me, started dozing.
“I quietly rolled over on the ground and then took off, running the race of my life until I reached the main road where some people assisted and brought me back to Bauchi.”
Bitrus said her fiancée and her reported the matter to the police and even took security men to the place where the other girl was slaughtered, unfortunately the culprits had left.
According to her, even the remains of the deceased passenger were not found there.
The Commissioner of Police in Bauchi State, Alhaji Mohammed Ladan, confirmed the incident in a telephone interview with NAN on Monday, adding that the command had commenced investigations into the matter.
Meanwhile, special prayers were held at the Yelwa ECWA Church, Bauchi, to thank God for sparing Bitrus life.
The Pastor in charge of the church, the Rev.Yahaya Madaki, told NAN that Bitrus’ miraculous escape was an act of God.
“I will advise commuters to be wary of the type of vehicle they board while travelling. What happened to Patience and the other deceased passenger should be an eye opener to all of us,” he said.
