Woman fakes own kidnap, demands N3 million from church members
The Police in Akwa Ibom State have arrested a 32-year-old woman identified as Victoria Ndu, for faking her own kidnap.
The suspect, who claimed to have been kidnapped, was rescued in Awommama in Imo State on August 24 by men of the anti-kidnapping squad from Akwa Ibom State police headquarters, Ikot Akpan-Abia.
Ndu was arrested the same day after investigations revealed that she actually planned her own kidnap in order to get money from her church members.
Her younger brother, Victor Akan, a resident of Awommama, was also arrested for allegedly conspiring with her to commit the crime.
