A 3-year-old girl, identified as Lydia Azatyom, was reportedly found in an abandoned well three days after she went missing in the Tudun Wada area of Jos, Plateau state.
According to reports, the minor was last seen with her friends outside their home on Thursday, October 27, 2022, before mysteriously disappearing.
All attempts by her family and neighbors to find out her whereabouts failed until three days later, when a Dauda Dung confirmed she had been found.
According to Tudun Wada Broadcast, some young men found the girl in the abandoned well in an unfinished building in the area.
It turned out that the young men had visited the site to defecate and heard sounds of movement in the dry pit.
It was further learned that the building has long been abandoned and is now used for open defecation and dump.
Lydia suffered bruises around her head and was rushed to the hospital where she is currently receiving medical attention.
It cannot be determined whether the girl accidentally fell into the well or if someone dumped her there.
