The Magistrate Court sitting in Wuse, Abuja, has granted bail to false alarmist Ameerah Safiyanu, aka Ameerah Sufyan.
Sufyan was granted bail by the magistrate court due to mental instability and neurological disorder.
The Twitter user was charged by Nigerian Police, Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Command for a false kidnap alarm.
Ameerah was arrested on June 17 after days of search amid Nigerians’ condemnation of the government and security agencies over worsening insecurity.
The citizen claimed that she and 16 other residents of Abuja were kidnapped at gunpoint and taken to a forest.
On June 14, Ameerah alleged that the victims, including three pregnant women and two children, were abducted by men in police uniforms.
On Wednesday, the court granted the defendant bail over mental health issues.
