Nollywood actress Mercy Johnson has raised an alarm over a call she received from a possible kidnapper with the number 09033510799 who called and said “hide out clear…do we kill them”.
Mercy said as soon as she replied the caller, the line went quiet completely after the person on the other end sensed he/she dialed a wrong number and thereafter ended the call.
According to Mercy, she decided to call back to get more information from the caller sensing someone may be in danger but it proved futile as her numerous calls were not picked and when it was eventually answered, the person at the other end rained curses on her.
Recounting the incident on her post on Instagram, Mercy said; “When I called back the person began to insult me via text messages. I am certain all is not well. Attention Nigerian Police.
“Please repost friends. Am certain because I engaged the person by replying to see if he or she will say something but no, it was just normal rude insult.
“So I can tell the person is trying to ward me off and make me feel he or she is not just a fan. It is not me maybe someone or some people are in danger and he mistakenly called my line to communicate”, her comments on Instagram read in full.
