Mrs. Sule Nana needed cash urgently, and wasn’t going to fool around because she was a good housewife in Ekiti.
According to her, the only alternative was to stage a kidnap of herself, and get what she wanted as a ransom.
The Ekiti police command responded to the distress call she made herself on Saturday.
“On 20/11/2021 at about 1030hrs, a distress call was received from one Sule Nana ‘f’ that she was kidnapped by unknown gunmen along Ifaki/Oye-Ekiti road alongside other passengers,” said ASP Sunday Abutu.
“She called her husband that the kidnappers were demanding for a sum of fifty thousand naira (#50,000:00) ransom before she could be released.
“The RRS Operatives, upon the receipt of the complaint, swung into action by combing the bush along Ifaki/Oye-Ekiti before it was later discovered that Sule Nana kidnapped herself to get money from her relatives. She has confessed to the commission of the crime.
According to the suspect, she decided to plan her own abduction in order to get money from her husband and relatives before she got arrested.
“I needed some money, but no way of getting it so I decided to plan my abduction where I will collect ransom. I called my husband to demand N50,000 ransom and in the process, I was arrested,” she said.
