17-year-old Ada Nba Agbazue has narrated how she fell from an abandoned 18-storey building while trying to avoid being raped and used for rituals by a man who pretended to be one of her Facebook friends. She is currently at the Ilemba Ajangbadi hospital in Lagos where she is being treated for multiple fractures and other injuries.
Ada Agbazue said she was lured to the abandoned storey building on December 26th by a man she purportedly met on facebook. The injured young lady said she is alive to tell her story from the sick bed to teach others to be careful of who they make friends with on social media.
She told her story to National Mirror;
“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 face book. 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 the face book. 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 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 neighbours.
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 neighbours. “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 the head has long weave on(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. Continuing her narration, the girl 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.
