A female student of Imo State University, IMSU, Chinwendu Udensi, was paraded yesterday by the Rivers State Police Command, for conniving with kidnappers to feign her abduction.
Udensi faked her kidnap and called her parents to get N5 million Naira to secure her freedom, but was arrested alongside her accomplices while waiting to receive the ransom.
According to Vanguard, the suspect, who had given her name to the police as Chiwendu Udensi, then changed her identity while fielding questions from newsmen.
Udensi told newsmen her name is Miss Janet Okoro, claiming she was a student of Abia State University. According to her…
“my name is Janet Okoro. I am a student of Abia State University. I told these people to fake my kidnap to get money from my people. I only wanted money for my clearance, that is all.”
Commissioner of Police, Francis Odesanya, said police had recorded much success in the fight against criminality in the state.
Odesanya, who paraded the suspects, said;
“On November 6, one Nmecha was called on phone that his sister, One Chinwendu Udensi, a student of Imo State University was kidnapped by unknown gunmen at Imo State.
“The kidnappers called and demanded for N5 million ransom. As they went to pick the money at Obiri Ikwerre Fly-Over, in Port Harcourt, in company of the supposed victim, they were arrested.”
This is the second fake kidnapping we are witnessing in a matter of days, if you remember the soldier who faked his – In case you missed it.
