John who was paraded a the state Police Command headquarters for the kidnap of the 13-year-old girl identified as Ijeoma, confessed that it was the only way he could get money from his stingy uncle so as to set up his business.

Hear his confession:

“I sent someone to my uncle’s shop to get some items and instructed the person to tell my niece to come to the car in which I was to get the money for the items.

On sighting me, I told her to come into the car and we forced her in. I took the girl just to revenge for what my uncle did to us. He breached a contract and he is very stingy.

We had a little quarrel in the past on trading business. I did it just to get money from him and I requested for N2.5 million. I was arrested on my way to get the ransom money he had agreed to pay. I did not know that he had involved the police."

Confirming the claims of the suspect, his uncle, Ogbonnaya Okoro, said his nephew kidnapped his daughter and then called him to demand N2.5 million for her safe return.
