Be careful of who you accept as friends on social media. that is an advise coming from a 17 year old Ada Nba Agbaazue, who escaped from a Facebook lover turned rapist who intended to kill her for ritual purpose after sleeping with her in an uncompleted 18 storey building in Abule-Ajanloco,Lagos.
Agbazue, who fell from the 18 storey building on a bid to escape from the killer, is presently lying at Ilemba Ajangbadi hospital in Lagos where she is being treated for multiple fractures and other injuries.
Her survival is nothing less than a miracle, even she herself finds it very hard to explain how she survived.
Narrating her ordeals from her hospital bed, Nba said that she was lured to the abandoned storey building on December 26th by a man she purportedly met on Facebook.
“My being alive is a miracle and I am grateful to God. With what I saw in that room, that man can be a cultist, he can be a ritual killer. He told me that he is a Buccaneer,” she narrated, tearfully.
According to her, a Facebook friend she identified as Michael lured her through Facebook to the abandoned building. Agbazue, on that fateful day, got dressed for a date with Michael. Narrating her ordeal, the young girl stated that she got a call on her mobile phone.
“My phone rang and a man said he wanted to speak with me. I don’t know how he got my number but he told me that it was from my Facebook page but he is not my friend on Facebook. He told me his name is Michael but he is not any of the Michaels that I know.
“I did not see any harm because he said we should meet at the Ile -Nla Bus Stop which is a busy place. When I got to the bus stop, I noticed he was looking at my picture on his phone. He looked up to see my face. He was standing opposite the road,” she narrated.
Agbazue said she became alarmed at first because the man did not look like the Michael she knew on Facebook. At that point, she hastily pointed out that she does not know him. As if trying to reassure her, the stranger told Agbazue to cross over.
Not realizing the mistake in doing so, the girl crossed over. The man touched her and immediately, as she narrated, matters changed. According to her she lost all will to resist the man.
“He touched me and immediately, I lost my senses. I started following him. It was just him, no other person was with him. He is a young man around 24 or 25 years old. “He told me that he is staying with his mum and brothers in the uncompleted building and they have neighbors.
He told me that they live in the uncompleted building, an 18 floor abandoned Federal government building. She explained that this was about 4.30 pm, that day.
“As we were going inside the building, I saw a lady coming out from the building. I saw passers-by and people playing ball. When we entered, he took me to the fourth floor and we entered a big room. I saw clothes. He told me that even the other side has neighbors.
“When we continued climbing up the stairs, I told him that I was tired but he pleaded with me. At the walls, I saw some strange diagrams, cultists diagrams painted on the wall. “I saw a human head by the wall. The head is not fresh but has long weave attachment on it.
I was scared when I saw the head. I wanted to go back but he brought out a knife. “I was kind of scared but not too scared. He ordered me to keep climbing up into the wider room,” narrated the girl.
According to Agbazue, the place looked like an umbrella and has many windows. She said that the man ordered her to leave the window. But she saw also that there was the word ‘buccaneer’ on the wall.
The man called Michael then told her that he is a Buccaneer. As the girl continued, she said that she saw lots of cultist diagrams on the wall. “I moved away and he told me to start pulling off my clothes. I told him you are not my husband so I cannot pull off my clothes for you; he told me that I was proving stubborn but I continued to beg him, but the more I begged him the more he used the knife to threaten me.
“He said if he calls his friends, it will be too much for me” she said. Michael started making calls. He made the first call and he started calling the second person. According to her, the man said that she should not try to run.
Now desperate, she moved to the window looking for an escape. She tried to climb down by holding a pole that she saw. At that point, he ran to her and held her hand, “trying to prevent me from escaping. I used my other hand to push him and that was how I fell to the ground,” she stated. Residents of the area saw Ada as she fell from the building thinking that she might be an apparition. Police authority however says that Agbazue was a victim of bad Facebook relationship.
