The Enugu state police command has arrested a gardener for allegedly threatening to kidnap and murder his boss via text messages and the internet.
The suspect, Nnaji Nwabueze is said to have demanded money from various targets and was nabbed by police on Friday following intelligence, after one victim, an Enugu-based businessman who hired the suspect as a gardener, reported to police.
Police spokesman of the command, SP Ebere Amaraizu, said the complainant had been receiving such threats from the suspect who said he would kidnap and murder him if he failed to provide the amount he demanded.
“The suspect, following his arrest, revealed how he and some of his cohorts usually perturbed their victims with their nefarious activities. Police is investigating deeper but the suspect has said he regretted his action, calling at “act of Satan.”
