Popular native doctor, Akwa Tiwara Aki regains freedom five days after he was abducted.
The herbalist was released on Saturday, as he disclosed in a viral video.
Narrating his abduction experience after his supporters and loved ones flocked to his house, he said on the day of the incident, he received a call from a friend who informed him they were relaxing at his hotel and had spent over N300,000.
He said the friends wanted him present so that he could subsidise their expenses.
Akwa, as he was fondly called by admirers, said he left his house for the hotel. He said he heard gunshots some minutes after he arrived at his hotel.
He said the criminals shot at him when he came out, but the bullets did not penetrate his body. He said that his two security aides were killed.
Akwa said he was forced by the kidnappers into their vehicle and driven away. He said he decided not to resist in order to prevent more loss of lives.
“I joined them to save lives of people in my hotel. I would have disappeared but if I did, it would have triggered more killings. I followed them to save lives,” Akwa said.
He also debunked claims of being abducted because he was owing someone. The native doctor also said that he was not abducted because he did evil to someone.
“I was with my captors hearing news that I was owing some people being the reason I was abducted.
“I am a rich man and if I was owing anybody I was equal to the task to pay the person back his or her money.
“The gunmen told me the reason they came to my hotel but certainly not for me. I only followed them to save lives of my people and customers”, he said.
