A patient reportedly absconded from the hospital where he was receiving treatment to “save” his sister-in-law who was adducted by unknown men.
It was gathered that the man was admitted at the Plateau Hospital Farm House when he received a call from the kidnappers who kidnaped his sister, requesting for ransom.
According to the man, the kidnappers requested 10Million Naira but he pleaded with them that he was on admission in the hospital and begged them to collect N400,000 which they eventually agreed.
He stated that to save his sister-in-law he had to leave the hospital immediately without the doctor’s permission. The kidnapers collected the money from him and released his sister-in-law, a University of Jos student, to him unharmed.
