A female student from a Nigerian University has been arrested after allegedly faking her own kidnapping so as to shake down her father for money.
Chinwendu Udensi, was allegedly kidnapped by gunmen who later called her parents, demanding for a 6 million Naira ransom. The girl’s parents involved the state police, who then set bait for Udensi’s kidnappers. The culprits were soon arrested in the company of their supposed victim.
The truth however surfaced and according to the police “the victim connived with them (her kidnappers) and arranged her kidnap to extort money from her parents”. When asked why she resorted to such means she said her father was a stingy wealthy man who did not give enough money for her upkeep.
“I wanted to collect money from my family, so I faked my kidnap. I did it to continue my schooling.
I’m not happy about my present condition because I never thought it will be like this. I sincerely apologize to my family for the trauma I might have caused them in a bid to extort money from them for my project and other requirements.
To my friends out there, my advice is that they should not involve themselves in such a crime.”
