Facebook user Ozurumba Uzoma, who shared the story said the boy gave his name as Daniel. According to Daniel, he entered a car along with other schoolchildren from Gboko to Tumbi area in Benue state before they were allegedly tied up and forced into the booth of the vehicle.
However for reasons yet to be known, the ritualists abandoned the boy who is currently at the Kubwa phase 4 police station in Abuja, and continued their journey with the other kids.

The days are evil, was exercising this morning and saw a young boy crying by the side of the road on Kubwa express. Walked up to him and asked him the problem, it turns out he took a car with other young school boys hoping to go from Gboko to Tumbi in Benue but unfortunately they were ritualist who tied them up along the way and put them in the booth.
That journey started on Monday but he for some divine reasons was dropped on Kubwa express and the ritualist continued the journey with the others. I have taken him to Kubwa phase 4 police station to help him trace his way back home.
Before now, it had also been reported that a 13-year-old boy, Odunayo Sunday, who was allegedly kidnapped in Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State capital, escaped from suspected ritualists in Ondo State. The boy was found by a good Samaritan at Ugbe Akoko in Akoko Northeast Local Government, from where he headed for home.
Sunday was abducted at Moferere in Ado-Ekiti when he was hawking vegetable. Two men inside a sport utility vehicle beckoned to him, pretending to buy the item. A source said the men bought vegetable worth N100 and gave the boy N1,000, expecting a balance of N900.
The source said the teenager looked for balance without success, after which the men beckoned to him. He entered their vehicle and they sped off.
Sunday said: “They took me to a bush where their members were waiting. But a disagreement ensued among them.
“I was very afraid. I prayed to God to save me from the ritual killers. God answered my prayers and they ordered me to leave. I ran as fast as I could.”
