Lady Arranges Own Kidnap With Boyfriend To Extort Money From Her Parents

Money, money money. A 20-year-old young lady, Tohebat Adebayo, has been arrested by the Ogun State Police command for allegedly arranging her own kidnap in connivance with her boyfriend, who was identified as Afolabi Ogunremi.

Tohebat's parents had reported her disappearance on September 27, 2017, to the police in Abeokuta, that she had left home for the market and did not return.

They told police that a man called them to inform them that he had kidnapped their daughter.

He demanded the sum of N200,000. 

The Divisional Police Officer of Lafenwa station, Abeokuta, Kayode Ayilara, and other detectives started a manhunt for the kidnapper by tracking the phone line.

This investigation led them to an abandoned house inside the Ibara GRA, Abeokuta, where Tohebat was being kept.

Tohebat’s boyfriend, Adebayo, who happened to be the security man in the premises was arrested.

Funny enough, after interrogation, Adebayo who confessed to being Tohebat’s boyfriend said they both arranged her kidnap in order to raise money for her forthcoming birthday.

Meanwhile, the state Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, has ordered the immediate transfer of the case to the Anti-kidnapping/Cultism unit of the Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Abeokuta, for further investigation.
