Days after sending a distress message on Twitter, Ameerah Sufyan, recanted her claims, revealing that she staged the alleged abduction.
Ameerah had gone viral last week after claiming she was kidnapped from her home in Abuja.
However, on Monday, Ameerah revealed that her actions were deliberate and apologised for the false alarm.
She said, “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.”
Meanwhile, upon ‘rescuing’ her last week, the Federal Capital Police Command denied that Ameerah wasn’t kidnapped but that they took her to the hospital based on best global practices.
Ameerah had trended for days on Twitter after she claimed that she was kidnapped alongside some other persons. She even claimed that the kidnappers were of Fulani and Yoruba ethnicities.
