In the state of partially unconsciousness, she heard them whispering that she was going to do God’s work.   In her own words she said the kidnappers said, ‘we are taking you to Kantin Kwari Textile Market to bomb it’.

However, Luck smiled on Ms Ibrahim as she was able to escape when the car overheated and both men hopped down to fix it thinking she was still unconscious. She ran and was rescued by a man in the neighborhood who took her to the police.

She was also brought before the Kano state governor, Umar Ganduje, who told the media: “If this woman had not regained consciousness the story would have been different by now”.
