A lady identified as Mary Idris has been arrested by the police for allegedly faking her kidnap, to extort money from her parents.

Mary who confessed to the crime, revealed that she arranged her kidnap on the 9th of August 2020, because her parents were not taking care of her.

She was arrested alongside her accomplice Victor Olawuse in Akure, Ondo State.

The arrest was shortly after her younger sister received a message conveying news of her alleged kidnap and demand for a ransom to be paid.

Ekiti state Commissioner of Police, Tunde Mobayo who was represented by the state Police Public Relations Officer Sunday Abutu during the parade, said;

” Mary’s mother came to our station and reported that her daughter, Mary Idris, left home on August 9, at about 4pm and never returned.

“She said all efforts to reach her daughter via phone calls proved abortive. After a while, the younger sister of the suspect received a message through her phone that Mary had been kidnapped and demanded ransom to be paid.

“The command’s Special Anti-Robbery Squad operatives tracked the phone number that sent the message to Akure, Ondo State, where Mary was arrested alongside her accomplice, Victor Olawuse.”
