Reality TV star Daniella Peters narrowly escaped a kidnapping attempt in Abuja.

The former BBNaija housemate shared the news in a viral video on her Instagram page on the 27th of June, 2024.

Expressing gratitude for the public’s swift response to her SOS, Daniella assured her fans that she is safe.

“Hello everyone, I am making this video to address my last post concerning near kidnapping experience that I encountered last week Friday. I want to thank everyone who has shown concern by commenting, calling and tagging the necessary organisations to ensure that this matter was handled urgently.

“I have been to the police station and back to the hospital. I thank the police for handling this matter thoroughly. As we speak the cab driver has confessed to everything I said.”

Under the video she wrote, “I’m now safe and recovering. God bless you all. Be safe.”

She explained that she had booked a cab and grew suspicious of the driver’s movements during the trip. When she asked the driver to stop, he refused.

Eventually, she jumped out of the moving vehicle, sustaining injuries that she later treated.
