A Magistrate Court in Central Nigeria's Jos city yesterday ordered the detention of a woman suspected of kidnapping two college students last year.

Mr. Darlington Davou and Steve Rowland Ronku, both students of the Plateau State College of Health Technology, Zawang, Jos were thought to be abducted sometimes between March 12th and 17th, 2018.

Mr. Davou was reported to have called his mother on April 3rd, 2018 using an unknown MTN line, hurriedly saying "mama don't cry" three times in Berom language before going off the phone.

His mother was said to have called the line back and heard a different male voice which warned that it was a wrong line before the phone went off.

The Police Special Anti Robbery Squad in Jos reportedly traced the phone line to one Mrs. Hindatu in Sokoto, Northwestern Nigeria.

A female voice had reportedly warned family members calling Mr. Davou's phone line in Hausa language, that they should stop disturbing with calls.

"Pass me that bastard here," the voice said in Hausa language after warning us before she hung up," a family member said.

Mrs. Hindatu, the prime suspect was however traced and arrested after families of the abductees facilitated the transportation of Police agents from Jos to Sokoto but soon released by the B Division Police authorities in Jos.

An independent cyber investigation said to have been sponsored by families of the abductees on the request of the Police was later carried out to facilitate further investigations.

The Plateau State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Tyopev Terna had assured of thoroughly investigating the case for justice and the possible rescue of the missing students.

Obviously having tried but failed in rescuing the victims as the suspect wouldn't own up to the crime, the Police in Jos yesterday yielded to requests by the affected families to forward the case to court.

The JMDB Magistrate court in the Plateau State capital however yesterday commenced hearing into the case, demanding the suspect until the resumption of sitting on Thursday 14th February 2019.
