*Asking For N500,000 Ransom

For self-kidnapping, the Ekiti State police command have arrested a 16-year-old girl, Abimbola Suluka and her boyfriend, Oluwaseun Olajide for alleged conspiracy and demanding for N500, 000 ransom.

The young girl was alleged to have conspired with the 25-year-old boyfriend and two of his friends to stage the abduction so as to raise money.

Spokesperson for the state police command, Sunday Abutu in a statement explained that Abimbola’s sister had gone to the police station to report that her sister was missing after leaving the house for school.

He said the sister explained that when Abimbola’s phone was called, an unknown person answered the call and informed them that she was in his custody and would not release her until a ransom of N500,000 was paid.

Luck ran against the suspects when the holder of the account given for the ransom payment was tracked and arrested by the anti-kidnapping unit of the police and forced to lead the police team to a hotel within the state capital where the supposedly abducted Abimbola and her boyfriend were nabbed.

Abimbola with the three others confessed to committing the crime, claiming she wanted to raise money from her family members to enable her relocate from Ekiti State since her mother insisted she studies medicine as against her own dream of becoming an actress.
