A 23-year-old boy named Edward Okache has arranged for his kidnapping by some men in Ogun State in order to collect N10 million from his parents.



Asamoah Ernest, Isiah Uti, Ephraim Anyijor, and Charity Lukpata were among the four people that Okache allegedly instructed to kidnap him on Monday, according to the police.

Comfort Okache had earlier called the Mowe divisional headquarters to report that his younger brother had been abducted while traveling from Calabar to Lagos in the Mowe region of Ogun State.

Abimbola Oyeyemi, the police spokesman in Ogun, claimed that the kidnappers demanded N10 million from the boy's relatives if they wanted to see him alive.

Following the report, DAILY POST discovered that SP Folake Afeniforo, the Mowe division's DPO, had dispatched the division's tactical teams to the area.

"The victim was sighted in an unfinished building with the pair of Asamoah Ernest, a Ghanaian, and Isiah Uti, where he was tied in both hands and legs," Oyeyemi said. "Upon painstaking and enduring combing of the surrounding bush at Orimerunmu area.

Police rescued the acclaimed victim and arrested the two suspects found with him.

But on getting to the station, the two arrested suspects made a shocking revelation: that the so-called victim was the person who planned with them to kidnap him in order for him to extort money from his parents to invest in an online business.

They further confessed that the said Okache was introduced to them by Anyijor and Lukpata, who are also indigenes of the same Yala Local Government Area of Cross River as the victim, saying that they were all part of the planned kidnap of Edward Okache.

Their confession, Oyeyemi stated, led to the arrest of Anyijor and Lukpata, adding that “they have all confessed to the commission of the crime.”

The Commissioner of Police in Ogun, Lanre Bankole, has directed that the case be referred to the anti-kidnapping unit of the State CIID for further investigation and possible prosecution.
