July 14, 2017 – Man Who Kidnapped Himself In Apapa LagosTo Collect N60Million Ransom From Elder Brother Arrested

Lagos Police Command has arrested a man, Ufom Udoh, for faking his abduction in order to get money from his elder brother, Victor.

Udoh allegedly demanded N60million ransom from his brother following his false kidnap on July 3, at Liverpool, Apapa.

It was gathered that the older Udoh reported at the police command that his brother was kidnapped by unknown persons.

According to the command’s spokesman, Olarinde Famous-Cole, an Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP), the case was referred to the anti-kidnapping unit for investigation.

He said one Paul Okiemute, who reported the false abduction at Udoh’s work place, was arrested when the unit traced all calls the complainant got on his phone.

Okiemute allegedly confessed that Udoh staged the kidnap because of “his financial problems.”

Famous-Cole said:

“Udoh was not kidnapped. It was all planned. He staged his own kidnap so that his elder brother can pay a ransom. The suspect said he made calls to the victim’s elder brother with an unknown number demanding a ransom of N60 million. Udoh was later picked up and he confessed to the crime. He said he checked into a hotel at Iyana-Ipaja area on July 3, where he spent three nights without food and water. The suspect said he trekked to Ifo in Ogun State, only to return to Lagos looking frail for his story to look convincing.”

Udoh and Okiemute will soon be charged to court.
