400 Level UNN Student Arrested For Attempted Kidnapping Cries “I Have Disappointed My Late Father & Poor Widow Mother, My Life Is Ruined

By Enyioha Opara, Northern City News

Police in Niger state have intercepted a three-man gang for attempting to kidnap one Chinedu Odenigbo of Angwan Kadara Maitumbi area of Minna.

The incident was reported to the police on April 18, 2019, by one Emenike Odenigbo who claimed to have caught two men attempting to abduct his sick son, Chinedu.

The suspects, Onwan Onyedika, 20 and Eze Athanasius, 27, both from Enugu State, were subsequently arrested by the police detectives attached to Maitumbi Division.

Northern City News gathered that the suspects, who were students of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, took to crime to make quick money.

Checks revealed that the suspects came from Abuja in the company of one Sunday Odenigbo, the younger brother to the complainant, to abduct his nephew.

Onyedika, a 400-level student of the university, told our correspondent that he was roped into the mess by Sunday, said to be a 500-level student of the same institution.

He said;

Sunday told me that he wanted to start a business while in school and begged me to accompany him to his brother’s house in Minna to rob him, stating that his brother will not give him the money otherwise, and I accompanied him.

“I don’t know what pushed me to this act. I never knew that my friend had a different thing in mind. To be sincere, I followed him to rob his brother not to kidnap his son.

“I have disappointed my late father; I don’t have reasons to get involved in this mess I found myself. How can I face my poor widow mother after disappointing her? I have ruined my life.”

    Robbing and kidnapping, what is the difference? You already made up your mind to make your poor mother cry the moment you agreed to crime. Whatever your eye see, drink plenty water on top am, that is even if you will see water to drink

    You have even roped yourself the more. Rob/ kidnap are of same class. Imagine all went well as planned you will be laughing to the bank. Rot in jail, next time you will have to give such a second thought.

    Say bye to your education and welcome to prison life. When will kidnapping be punishable by death in Nigeria? For Sunday Odenigbo life in prison without parole awaits you. Thanks to the police in Niger State.
