Police Arrests Lady For Faking Her Kidnap To Extort Her Parents
Ekiti police command has arrested a lady identified as Mary Idris for faking her kidnap to extort money from parents.
Mary was arrested alongside her accomplice Victor Olawuse in Akure, the Ondo State capital.
She was arrested shortly after her younger sister received a message conveying news of her alleged kidnap and demand for a ransom to be paid.
Ekiti state Commissioner of Police, Tunde Mobayo who was represented by the state Police Public Relations Officer Sunday Abutu during the parade, said;
Mary’s mother came to our station and reported that her daughter, Mary Idris, left home on August 9, at about 4pm and never returned.
She said all efforts to reach her daughter via phone calls proved abortive. After a while, the younger sister of the suspect received a message through her phone that Mary had been kidnapped and demanded ransom to be paid.
The command’s Special Anti-Robbery Squad operatives tracked the phone number that sent the message to Akure, Ondo State, where Mary was arrested alongside her accomplice, Victor Olawuse.
Mary confessed to the crime and also revealed that she arranged the kidnap because her parents were not taking care of her.
I arranged the kidnap to get money from my parents because they are not taking proper care of me.
