I Wasn’t Kidnapped, I Deliberately Entered Bushes, ‘Victim’ Ameerah Recants
Amira Sufyan, an Abuja-based lady who recently declared herself missing, admitting that she was never kidnapped.
On June 14, Miss Sufyan had in a series of tweets claimed that gunmen who disguised as police officers had abducted her alongside 16 other victims at different parts of Abuja, and driven off in a van.
The FCT police command swiftly mobilized their men in search of her.
Our correspondent gathered that Miss Sufyan later took herself to a Lagos hospital for treatment and declared that she was released by the kidnappers.
While the FCT command was yet to release the outcome of their investigation, Miss Amira took to her Twitter handle to apologise to Nigerians for what she described as a false alarm.
Writing on her Twitter handle: @Ameerah_sufyan on Monday, Miss Amira said: “Good day all, I would like to formally apologize to the general public, to the whole police department and my friends and family for misleading them with the below tweet, nothing of such happened and it was all just my delusions and negative thinking.
“I would also like to thank the IG and the CP Babaji Sunday for helping me through this, may God reward them abundantly”.
“I intentionally took myself out of our house, went to these locations, entered bushes and dehydrated and starved myself for four days just like that, there was no kidnapping, nothing at all, I truly apologize and please pray for me, I need it.”
