Boy Stages His Own Kidnap while flexing master’s money in a hotel with 2 Girls
A teenager who arranged a kidnap of himself with the aim of diverting his master’s Five hundred thousand naira (N500,000), has been arrested by police detectives in Ogun State.
The suspect identified as, Adeboye Micheal, 18, was said to have been sent to the bank by his master, Oluwoju Ojo Abiodun, to deposit N500,000 but thereafter he decided to play a trick on his boss by doing away with the money and went further to make further demand of another N500,000 through an arranged kidnap.
In order to accomplish his mission, it was gathered that Michael contacted his friends, Nafiu Ojo, and Abdullahi Lawal, who both acted as kidnappers.
As the plan was on-going, the principal suspect, apparently felt convinced that the deal was flawless, lodged in a hotel with two girls, playing, ‘big boy’ with his master’s money.
The whole thing turned around on Micheal and his friend, when his master, Oluwoju Ojo Abiodun, made a call through to Oke-Itoku Police Division in Abeokuta and narrated how he sent his apprentice, Michael, to bank with the said sum, only to be stunned by the news of his ‘kidnap’ , a few hours later, with the men behind the scene claiming to have collected the money from him, and made an additional demand of N500,000 to make up their N1million ransom.
According to a press release by the Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, after a preliminary investigation by men of Oke-Itoku Police Station, the case was transferred to the Anti-Kidnapping Section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID) in Eleweran, whose technical-based investigation trailed and apprehended Michael’s collaborators on December 13, 2018.
“On interrogation, they narrated how Micheal contracted them to act as kidnappers and put a call through to his boss in order to make away with the #500,000 in his possession. Upon their confession, they said Adeboye Micheal was subsequently arrested.
He made a confessional statement that he only lodged in a hotel with two girls where he squandered the said sum. The leftover of #120,000, being part of the money, was recovered from him” the PPRO said.
Oyeyemi hinted that, shortly before the arrests of Nafiu and Abdullahi “Michael, apparently sensing that their game was up, emerged from the blues and started giving cock and bull stories of his fake abduction, unknown to him that the Anti-” Kidnapping detectives were already close to arresting him.
