When you think you have seen or heard it all, and then thinks like this come and you rwlaise you haven’t seen it all.
A 17 year old boy, who under the Nigerian constitution is still a minor, is said to have come for his stingy mother is a special way.
The Abia State Police operatives arrested the 17 year old named Obinna Nwatu for going as far as staging his ver own kidnap with the very intent to extort money from his supposedly “stingy” mother, Mrs Rose Nwatu.
According to #Instablog9ja , the young boy who is a secondary school student,had on September 18, 2021,
lodged himself into a hotel with the aid of his accomplice, who proceeded to contact his mom and made the 6million Naira ransom demand.
After arresting the desperate culprit on Friday 8th October, the police spokesperson,
CP Janet Agbede said that after the call was made to Mrs Nwatu who raised an alarm, the victim’s elder brother ,
Wisdom reported the case to the police about their brother’s abduction.
She added that Wisdom informed the police that the alleged kidnap took place along Stadium road ,
Okpuala Ngwa by unknown hoodlums operating with an ash colour sienna with an unknown registration number,
stating that Obinna was on his way to buy recharge card that evening when the abduction took place.
The Anti kidnapping unit of the command while investigating the case on October 4th 2021,
arrested one Chinaza Favour Ukaigwe who is 19 years of age, after his bank account was used to receive a N200k ransom.
Chinaza was the one who spilled everything, stating that Obinna faked his own kidnap.
He stated that Obinna and one favour Ugorji a.k.a “Wizzy” came to his shop at Aba road and requested for his account details,
to enable them receive their younger sister’s school fees.
I guess this was how far their thinking faculty could go with on the plan, because it was obviously that any account used for a kidnap will be investigated.
