I’ve said it before. The way some young girls of these days behave because of money is totally wrong and if no one tells them, most of them will just continue to carry on thinking they are on the right track.
A female student of Delta State University, Belynda Chinwe Bosa, has been arrested by the police in the state for staging her own kidnap in a desperate bid to extort money from her parents.
Mrs Beatrice Bosa reported in December that her daughter, Belynda, who resides in Lagos, was travelling from Lagos to Abraka in Delta State when she was kidnapped along the way by unknown gunmen.
She claimed her abductors were demanding a ransom of N500,000.00 but was surprised that her boyfriend and his brother demanded N10million from her parents. The boyfriend, who was also arrested, confessed to the crime…
He claimed that he came from overseas and that both of them wanted to use the money to settle down – rent a flat, equip it and use part of the money to start a business in Nigeria. What was he doing abroad?
Sequel to the report, operatives of Special Anti-Kidnapping Squad, Asaba, swung into action and arrested one America Sunday Ogagawotu at Oyiobo, Port-Harcourt, Rivers State, after withdrawing the ransom money which was paid into his Ecobank account in Port-Harcourt.
Commissioner of Police, Delta State, Alkali Baba Usman, when contacted by Daily Independent revealed that the victim, on leaving Lagos went to her boyfriend, one George Itietie in Port-Harcourt where she, her boyfriend and America Sunday Ogagawatu planned to inform her parents that she was kidnapped so as to extort money from them.
He further disclosed that the female student, Belynda, got N100,000.00 as her own share from the ransom of N500,000.00 paid by her parents.
The trio of Belynda, Itietie and Ogagawatu have confessed to the crime.
Belynda’s parents are sad, they couldn’t believe their “decent daughter” would be involved in such mess.
