The Nigerian Police Force (NPF) has found Safiyanu Ameerah (Amira) the lady whose tweet of being abducted went viral Tuesday.
She had sent out a tweet claiming to have been kidnapped at gun point along with 17 others.
In a statement signed by the Force Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, the police said her story was doubtful.
“We have some suspicions about her claims as much as we debunk the kidnap of 17 others.
“We have some findings to make in order to get a clearer picture of the whole scenario and take proper decision as and at when due.
“We will keep the general public abreast of our findings as soon as possible,” Mr. Adejobi wrote.
The statement is coming after the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Police Command disclosed in a series of tweets that Ameerah’s reported abduction was false.
