A young man who thought he could make some fast money by indulging in kidnapping has been arrested by the police from the Delta State Command after he foolishly left a ransom note with his phone number boldly written on it at the crime scene.

The suspect, Sampson Elelegwu, from Agbor in Ika South Local Government Area of the state, had kidnapped a young girl from her house and left a note for her parents on how how to pay him the ransom, giving them all the details including his phone number.

The parents of the girl handed over the note to the police who called the 'learner' kidnapper and gave him instructions on where to go and pick the ransom and he walked directly into the hands of operatives attached to Special Anti-Kidnapping Squad, at the command headquarters, Asaba.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Celestina Kalu, confirmed the arrest and said after the parents of the girl made a report, the squad swung into action, trailed the suspect with the phone number, 08064724929, and arrested him.
