Ndudi Ogwu, an ND II Mechanical Engineering student of the Delta State Polytechnic, Ogwashi-Uku, was sentenced alongside a businessman, Chukwudi Ifemeni, for kidnapping a nurse.

The court held that the prosecution had proven its case beyond reasonable doubt and sentenced the duo to 10 years in prison for kidnapping and a further 4 years for conspiracy.

According to the prosecution, the accused and two others still on the run kidnapped one Mrs Okogu at Ughelli on September 13, 2012 and took her into a forest along Isoko-Patani Road in Delta state.

The victim was however rescued the next day by a Joint Task Force (JTF) team who also arrested Ogwu at the scene.

His initial confessional statements led to the arrest of the second accused.

Interestingly, during their trial, the convicts denied the charges they had initially confessed to have committed but it wasn't enough to grant them an escape.
