A 13-year-old girl, who was kidnapped in Ekete, Udu Local Government Area of Delta State and held for eight days by suspected kidnappers over the title documents of her late father’s property has been released.

According to a family source, the victim was kidnapped on September 5 at 12 noon, when she went to a nearby market to buy foodstuffs, by a gang allegedly hired by a member of the family.

Trouble was said to have started in the family soon after the death of the father, Mr. Michael Salubi, in November last year, and a petition was forwarded to the police at Ovwian-Aladja Police Division for intervention.

During the burial of the deceased in August, the victim’s mother, Mrs. Evelyn Salubi, was reportedly humiliated by some members of the family, but the crisis degenerated on September 5, with the kidnap.

In a petition sent to the Area Commander, Nigeria Police Force, Warri, Mr. Oghenejabor Ikimi, counsel to her mother, Mrs. Salubi, said “between 8pm and 9pm of that same day, our client received a call from her daughter’s mobile phone and a male voice spoke to her.

“The voice said that if she wants her daughter alive, she should drop the late husband’s house documents in her possession.”

He said the caller called Mrs. Salubi on September 6, “threatening to come for her life and that of her other children since our client refused to drop the said documents.”

He added that his client, who heard the voice of her kidnapped daughter in the background, asked the suspect for direction on where to drop the said documents, but he asked if she does not know the person that was entitled to the said documents. [Vanguard]
