A 3-year-old girl, identified as Lydia Azatyom, was discovered in an abandoned well three days after she went missing in the Tudun Wada area of Jos, Plateau State.
The minor was reportedly last seen playing with her friends outside their home on Thursday, October 27, 2022, before she mysteriously disappeared.
Efforts made by her family and neighbors to find her were in vain until three days later when a certain Dauda Dung confirmed that she has been found.
According to Tudun Wada Broadcast, a couple of young men found the girl in an abandoned well in an unfinished building in the area.
It is reported that the young men went to the site to defecate and heard sounds of movement inside the dry well. It was also learned that the building had long been abandoned and is now being used for open defecation and dumping.
Lydia had bruises around her head and was immediately taken to the hospital where she is currently receiving medical treatment.
However, it remains to be clarified whether Lydia accidentally fell into the well or whether someone threw her there.
