Israel DMW: How Kidnappers Freed, Gave Me Transport Fare

Singer, Davido’s logistics manager, Israel Afeare, aka Israel DMW, has recounted his fortunate experience in the hands of kidnappers some years ago.

According to the Edo-born social media sensation, he was kidnapped in 2001 alongside three others after boarding a vehicle heading to Ibadan from Lagos.

He said their abductors, whom he claimed were ritualists, took them to a forest midway into the journey for ritual, but that fortunately for him, he was released and given a transportation fare to leave.

Israel claimed their abductors released only him because they said he was “a very bad market.”

He made this known via his Instagram story on Wednesday while celebrating his birthday anniversary.

He wrote, “Four of us were kidnapped for rituals in 2001, on our way from Lagos to Ibadan, after entering a vehicle.

“They took us to a very thick forest. I was the only one allowed to go, saying I was a very bad market. They gave me N200 to add to the already 40 naira with me for transportation. I just give glory to God Almighty.”
