The Lagos State Police have arrested a couple (name withheld) for allegedly organising their own kidnap to demand ransom.
Police PRO, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, told the News Agency of Nigeria on Saturday that the husband and wife demanded N5 million ransom from his siblings living abroad.
According to Hundeyin, police arrested the man, a 53-year-old technician and his 48-year-old wife, who’s a masseuse and bone setter, on Wednesday and Thursday respectively after a family member of the man reported the purported kidnap.
He said the couple confessed to the crime and claimed their plan was kidnap themselves with a view to raising N3 million to buy back their house in the Badagry area of Lagos.
“The man brought the idea and sold it to his wife. He did not deny it before the police. He said he did it through a text message for a purpose. He said he did it because he wanted to buy back his house with N3 million.
“The man claimed he decided to organise a self-kidnap because he has financially capable brothers and sisters abroad.
“He claimed that if they hear of his kidnap with his wife, they would negotiate with the kidnappers and pay the money,” the spokesperson said.
The Police PRO added that the couple were neither waylaid nor taken to unknown location, rather they were still living in their house in Badagry when they sent out text messages of their kidnap to their relations.
