Early this week, the police has arrested a boy named Okache for faking his kidnap in order to rake in 10 million from his parent in Ogun State.
The Ogun State police command spokesman said Okache was nabbed with four others identified as: Asamoah Ernest, Isiah Uti, Ephraim Anyijor and charity Lukpata, whom he told to kidnap him.
One Comfort Okache had earlier reported at the Mowe divisional headquarters via a phone call that his younger brother, travelling from Calabar to Lagos, had been kidnapped around Mowe area of Ogun State.
According to the police spokesman in Ogun, Abimbola Oyeyemi, the kidnappers were demanding N10 million if the relatives wanted to see the boy alive.
Upon the report, the DPO of Mowe division, SP Folake Afeniforo, had mobilized the division’s tactical teams to the area.
“Upon painstaking and enduring combing of the surrounding bush at Orimerunmu area, the victim was sighted in an uncompleted building with the duo of Asamoah Ernest, a Ghanaian, and Isiah Uti, where he was tied in both hands and legs,” Oyeyemi said.
Police rescued the acclaimed victim and arrested the two suspects found with him.
