In another report, Samuel Abdulraheem was abducted from his home in northern Nigeria, and was found only after six years.

He was playing outside his home when he disappeared.

All efforts to trace him, including a report to the police, extensive searches, efforts by spiritual priests and the use of posters proved futile.

Samuel’s sister, Firduasi, was however convinced that he was still alive and therefore clung on to the hope that she would one day meet with him.
