Silly: Student Arranges Own Kidnap To Extort N6m From Her ‘stingy’ Parents
SAN FRANCISCO, November 17, (THEWILL) – The Rivers State police command has paraded a female student of the Imo State University (IMSU), Chinwendu Udensi, for allegedly arranging her kidnap, to extort money from her stingy and rich parents.
The Rivers State Police Commissioner, Francis Odesanya, said Miss Udensi plotted her kidnap and demanded N6 million ransom from her parents as he paraded her with the three men that perfected the plan.
He disclosed that she was exposed after she sent one of her accomplices to pick the ransom on Obiri Ikerre flyover at Obio/Akpor.
“On November 6 about 4pm , Chinwendu Udensi, a female student of Imo State University, was kidnapped by gunmen in Imo State,” Odesanya said.
“The kidnappers called and demanded N6million ransom. Men of the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Monitoring Unit led by Ben Igweh set a bait for them and as they went to pick the money on Obiri Ikwerre flyover in company of the victim, they were arrested.
“It was later discovered that the victim connived with them and arranged her kidnap to extort money from her parents.”
The suspect confessed that she was pushed into the act because of her wealthy but stingy father’s refusal to give her money.
“Nothing much happened. I wanted to collect money from my family, so I faked my kidnap. I did it to continue my schooling,” she said.
“I'm not happy about my present condition because I never thought it will be like this.
“I sincerely apologise to my family for the trauma I might have caused them in a bid to extort money from them for my project and other requirements. To my friends out there, my advice is that they should not involve themselves in such a crime.”
