A middle aged woman, Yemi Samuel was paraded by the Kwara Command of the Nigerian Police for feigning her kidnap.
The woman was said to have left home into hiding claiming that she was kidnapped while cleaning the compound by unknown gang and taken to unknown destination.
Her alleged kidnapers were said to have requested ransom of Five million naira only for her release.
Mrs Yemi Samuel was said to have insisted that her kidnappers were unwilling to talk to anyone on phone due to fear of being recognized but after a while, she called to state that the kidnppers had reduced the value of ransom requested to one million naira only.
Parading the suspect, Acting Police Public Relations Officer, Superintendent Onyegbu Akandu, said that the husband went round friends, well wishers and family members to raise a sum of Five hundred thousand naira only but while the ransom was being arranged, the police detectives led by OC SIB, CSP Saka Fagade were able to track her to her parents house at Kulende area of Ilorin where she was eventually arrested.
Asked on what informed her decision to arrange her own kidnap, the suspect, Yemi Samuel said that she did this to raise money for her family adding that her wealthy husband relations had abandoned them for long and she thinks the best way to get money out of them was acting the kidnap.
She however explained that her husband was not in the entire picture adding that she planned it all and executed her kidnap within her mind not seeking third party assistance to be able to conceal the crime.
The police said that investigation continues into the matter to ascertain the facts in her confessional statements.
