A bad daughter who organized her own kidnap with her boyfriend to get money from her parents has been arrested.
A female undergraduate of the Delta State University, Abraka, Belynda Chinwe Bosa, is now in the police net after she was arrested for organising her own kidnap with her boyfriend with a view to collecting the sum of N10 m from her wealthy parents.
Bosa, a 25-year-old Mass Communication student of the university, had connived with her lover, George Itietie, an undergraduate of the Institute of Management and Technology, IMT, Enugu, to abduct her and make a ransom demand from her parents who negotiated the sum to N5 million.
The suspects were able to get the sum of N500,000 which was paid into an ECO Bank account domiciled in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, before they were nabbed in a hotel at Oyibo axis of Port Harcourt where they had lodged.
While parading the suspects at the Delta State Police Command, Asaba, the state Police Public Relations Officer, (PPRO), DSP Celetina Kalu, said the suspects were using one female anchor person who goes by the name America Sunday Ogagawotu to establish contact with the girl’s mother who was apprehensive.
"Investigation into the incident revealed that the suspect (Bosa), on leaving Lagos, went to her boyfriend, one George Itietie, in Port Harcourt where she, the said Itietie (boyfriend) and Ogagawotu (anchor-person) planned to inform her parents that she was kidnapped."
Going by the plot, they were to extort money from her parents because “Ogagawotu got N100,000 as her own share from the ransom.”
Confessing her crime, Bosa said she regretted her involvement in the abduction, stating it was her boyfriend who pushed her into the act, threatening to dump her if she refused to cooperate with him.
"I am sorry for the stress I made my parents to go through."
