WorldStage Newsonline– The Ogun State Police Command has uncovered a plot by one Tohebat Adebayo who plotted her own kidnapping with her boyfriend, Afolabi Ogunremi (30) in order to raise N200,000 to fund her forthcoming birth day bash.
In a statement by the Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi it was revealed that Tohebat left home for Lafenwa market in Abeokuta, but never returned, which prompted the parents to start searching for her and later reported the case at the Lafenwa Police Divisional Headquarters.
The statement said that an unknown man later called the parents to inform them that their daughter had been kidnapped and demanded N200,000 as a ransom for her release.
“Based on the report by the parents, the Divisional Police Officer, kayode Ayilara, led detectives to an abandoned house inside the Government Reservation Area where the girl was being kept,” the statement said.
“The discovery led to the arrest of Adebayo who happened to be the security man in the house.
“On interrogation, Adebayo claimed to be the boyfriend of the girl and that they both planned to simulate her kidnap in order to raise money for her forthcoming Birthday from the parents.”
The statement added that the commissioner of police, Ahmed iliyasu had ordered that the case should be transferred to the Command’s anti-kidnapping and cultists for further investigation.
