In a chat with TheCable, Sahabi Sufyan, who identified himself as Ameerah’s brother, said his abducted sister was just recovering from an accident.

He said, “It’s not easy to have a loved one in the hands of unknown men, most especially, those who are armed with intentions and whereabouts unknown.”

“She’s just recovering from an accident where a hit-and-run driver knocked her down. With her health, coupled with the level of insecurity, we can only trust God.”

Sufyan’s abductors were unaware of her distress call through her phone. Her last location update placed her close to Kuru, along the Makurdi-Jos Road at about 3:36pm on Tuesday.

Reacting in a series of tweets, the FCT police command said investigation had begun into the incident, adding that operatives have been deployed to track the victims, and urged everyone to remain calm.
