I was not kidnapped, only faked it - Ameerah

Ameerah Sufyan Ameerah Sufyan

A lady, Ameerah Sufyan, who alleged on Twitter that she and 16 others were abducted at gunpoint in Abuja by men in police uniform, has apologised.

On her Twitter handle @ameerah_sufyan had tweeted, “Please whoever has my WhatsApp number I sent a broadcast message of my location.

“We were abducted at gunpoint by people with police uniforms and a van from our houses from different parts of Abuja.

“We’re 17 including three pregnant women and two little kids. They didn’t see my phone.”

Shortly after the first tweet, Sufyan gave details of her captors, adding that they were being transported to the western part of the country.

“They’re four yoruba and two Fulani men. They divided us up an hour ago. We’re seven here,” she tweeted.

Backtracking on Monday, Sufyan in a series of tweets, 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 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 apologise and please pray for me. I need it.”
