Josephine Otabor, the reality TV star fondly called Phyna, says she “escaped a kidnap attempt” in Delta state. 


In a recent post on X, Phyna said on her way to an event in Delta, she allegedly witnessed how kidnappers hijacked four cars in front of the one she was in and took the passengers away.

The reality star surprisingly inquired whether she had just survived the kidnappers’ attack. She added that the incident left her in a state of shock.

“Omo….. so I got to delta state today (GIG) we were moving in convoy and suddenly one of the cars drift of the road, which led to a very minor accident, so we all had to stop to see what can be don, but since it was getting late two of the cars including the one I’m in decided to continue the journey,” she wrote.


“…omo na so we drive go front 4 cars to the one i was in I just dy look kidnap… they carried them out of their cars and left both cars empty in the middle of the road… see the way cars where turning and riding one way back 😬😩😩😬 omo I just dy shiver.”


In the past years, Nigeria has witnessed a surge in the rate of kidnapping in different states.

Last week, the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) asked President Bola Tinubu to declare a state of emergency on the insecurity in the country.

Consequently, Tinubu, 36 state governors, and the minister of the federal capital territory (FCT) have also agreed on the need to recruit more police officers to tackle the growing insecurity.
