Edo State popular musician, Osayomore Joseph who was freed from the lionâ€™s den of kidnappers narrated the ordeals he went through in the hands of his captors
â€œI paid huge ransom before I was released by my abductors after 30 days in captivity,â€ he told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday in Benin.
Osayomore was kidnapped on Oct. 4 and eventually released to his family on November 4.
The popular musician said that his wife was shot by his abductors before they zoomed-off with him into a forest, abutting a creek, after travelling on the high sea.

He said the trauma he suffered during his 30-day abduction was not an experience he wanted to remember.
He said that he had packaged his experience in his new album titled â€œ30 days and 30 nights in the evil forestâ€ set to be launched today 16 December.
According to him, I was dragged through the forest close to Gelegele and taken in a boat to a creek.
â€œI have never stepped into a boat before. The speed boat on the high sea is enough to give me high blood pressure.
â€œThe kidnappers called themselves forest soldiers. Those who came to kidnap me did not know me.
â€œIt was when I got to the creek that some learned ones started singing my old songs. They did not know that I started fighting before they were born.

â€œThey may have overestimated me that I am very rich. They collected money from me.
â€œI will not mention the amount, but it is colossal. That will not deter me from doing what I know how to do best.
â€œI did not know I will come back alive. I later know I will not die there when they started asking for money.
â€œThe ransom was collected on the high sea. They called the boat that brought the ransom money Freedom Boat. I was on an Evil Boat
â€œAfter they brought the bags containing huge sums of money, the kidnappers checked them and that was how I came back.â€ (NAN)
