An 18 year old girl, Blessing John of Michika Local Government Area, Adamawa state has confessed to abducting a 9 year old Elkanah Samuel.

The girl and a neighbour to Elkanah was said to have concluded arrangement with a buyer (names withheld) in Mubi that she will be bringing the boy to him in order to buy. But as God will have it, she called the man’s line on their arrival in Mubi but it was not reachable.
Thereafter, she boarded a tricycle with the helpless and innocent boy to unguwan Kara in Mubi described to her by the man, but unfortunately she could not locate the house of the man.

The man was said to have immediately mobilised people and reported the matter to the police in Mubi. The operatives in Mubi sent signal to Michika divisional police headquarters where the incident was confirmed.
When arrested and brought to Michika divisional headquaters along side the boy, the girl confessed abducting the boy with an intention of selling him. She regretted her action and pleaded with the police to forgive her.
