The Rivers State Police Command have arrested a man named Nwanaka Egbo, who reportedly abducted his elder sister, Nwanaka Ada, and demanded a sum of N10m for her release.
This was confirmed by Nnamdi Omoni, the state Police Public Relations Officer, who told the press on Friday, August 12, 2016, when the suspect was being paraded.
Nwanaka reportedly did this in collaboration with his friend, who kept her in captivity.
“On the 31st of August 2016, while Egbo was in his barbing salon, a friend of his came to him and told him that they should kidnap his (Egbo) sister.”
“Egbo directed some members of his gang to his elder sister room, where she was kidnapped.”
“The gang later demanded for a N10 million ransom. But with our investigation, security operatives stormed the hideout of the gang and rescued the Egbo sister (Ada Nwanaka), who is currently receiving treatment in the hospital.”
“Egbo’s friend, who planned the kidnap with him, was killed during a shootout with operatives of the Anti-kidnapping Unit of the State Police Command.”
The woman was rescued by armed policemen, who killed his accomplice in a fierce gun battle.
