Female Student Arrested For Arranging Her Own Kidnap To Extort N6m From Her Parents
The state police command paraded the young lady for allegedly arranging her kidnap. The suspect, who gave her name as Chiwendu Udensi, however, told reporters that she is Miss Jennet Okoro. She said she is from Imo State.
Also paraded were the three men that perfected her kidnap.
The police commissioner said Chiwundu plotted her kidnap and demanded N6million ransom from her parents.
He said she was, however, exposed when she sent one of her accomplices to pick the ransom on Obiri Ikerre flyover at Obio/Akpor.
Odesanya said: “On November 6 about 4pm, Chinwendu Udensi, a female student of Imo State University, was kidnapped by gunmen in Imo State.
“The kidnappers called and demanded N6million ransom. Men of the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Monitoring Unit led by Ben Igweh set a bait for them and as they went to pick the money on Obiri Ikwerre flyover in company of the victim, they were arrested.
“It was later discovered that the victim connived with them and arranged her kidnap to extort money from her parents.”
In an interview with reporters, she said she did it to get money from her wealthy but stingy father.
Her words: “Nothing much happened. I wanted to collect money from my family, so I faked my kidnap. I did it to continue my schooling.”
Asked if her parents did not take care of her, she answered in the affirmative.
Regretting her action, Chinwendu said: “I’m not happy about my present condition because I never thought it will be like this. I sincerely apologise to my family for the trauma I might have caused them in a bid to extort money from them for my project and other requirements..."
