Mrs Zacchaeus Adeyinka, aunt of Gloria Taye Bright, who recently arrived in Nigeria after being rescued from Lebanon where she was a home help, has come out to talk about how the family made efforts to assist Gloria return to Nigeria after they saw her viral video in which she spoke about suffering in Lebanon

What do you do?

I am a retired teacher. I am Gloria’s aunt. Her father is dead.

When was the last time you saw Gloria Bright before she ended up in Lebanon?

For some time, I had not seen her. You know, she is married and she and her family are living together. They stay far from us. Since they had their wedding few years ago, I had not seen them. Before their wedding, we lived in the same area in Ilorin here, but when they got married, they got their own apartment and I didn’t see them again.

How did you know she travelled to Lebanon?

We didn’t know she travelled to Lebanon; it was when the problem started that we knew she was not in the country. We didn’t know she travelled until we saw a video in which she was calling for help.

I got information that she was trapped in Lebanon last week when I saw her viral video. The video was shown to the President of Eruku Progressive Union, who promptly sent messages to all of us at home and abroad.

When you saw the video clip, what was your reaction?

I saw the video clip about a week ago. In fact, I was highly disturbed. Then, since there was nothing I could do, I started praying to God to deliver her from the place she was.

I started praying to God who delivered Joseph from prison and Daniel from the claws of lions in the Bible to deliver her and I believe the God who delivered Israel from Pharaoh in those days will deliver Taye (Gloria). We also made contacts through our union, Eruku Progressive Union, to all our sons and daughters in different parts of the world to help us locate her wherever she was in the world.

One of our sons, Toyin Aborisade, who initiated Phemnick Support Group, a nongovernmental organisation, was contacted. He is a son of the soil in Eruku and he is a member of our family. In our family, we have a group called JIB, that means Janet Idowu Bamidele descendants and Toyin is a member of the group. Janet Idowu Bamidele is a woman who did not know any of her parents but she was very close to her relations and before she died, she told all members of her family to come together; that was how we formed JIB descendants. The woman, during her lifetime, was known as Iya Olobi (Kolanut seller), so we call ourselves Omo Iya Olobi and Toyin Aborisade is one of us. We called him and told him about Taye (Gloria).

He immediately contacted his group in the USA, Nigeria, Lebanon and other parts of the world. He made some money available for the rescue of not only our daughter, Taye, but also Omolola Ajayi, a Nigerian who also made a video in which sought assistance to be rescued from Lebanon.

How did you know Taye had arrived in the country?

My aunt called to inform to say she (Gloria) was with the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps and that was how all of us got to this place.

When you saw the video clip, did you contact her husband?

No, because I didn’t know where the husband was.

What plan does the family have for Gloria?

The first thing is for her to have some rest. She has to be at home for at least one month, eating and resting. Then, the family will meet over her issue, but we know that God will make a way for her. The God that made way for the Israelites in the wilderness will make a way for her.

What advice do you have for young Nigerians?

They should be patient. God is going to revive the economy of our country and the lost glory of Nigeria will come back. I want to advise them not to be desperate to get rich quickly. They should cultivate the habit of endurance.

I will advise them to stay here and do whatever they can find to do because tough times don’t last forever. I believe the economy will be revived and Nigeria will reclaim its lost glory. Our young ones should stay here in the country to do whatever they can find to do.
