The teen later claimed that her mouth was covered but managed to escape after the abductor stopped to relieve himself by the roadside near Sutera Harbour.

In a statement by Kota Kinabalu district police chief Assistant Commissioner Kasim Muda, he said questioning of the victim, witnesses, and investigations at the scene soon raised deep doubts about the entire incident.

Further investigation revealed that the 13-year-old intentionally made up the kidnapping story because she didn’t want to attend religious classes.

“The victim was also afraid of being scolded by the complainant (her mother) for refusing to attend (religious classes),” he said.

Handed over to her parents

Kasim added that police discovered that during her ‘disappearance’, the victim was wandering around Plaza Wawasan until security guards at Wisma Sedco noticed her prolonged presence inside the building.

“She has been handed over to her parents and was advised not to do it again in the future. We urge young people not to do the same as it causes panic and wastes the police’s time and resources,” he said.
