The Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba, on Monday, paraded two siblings, Chinaza Nwogu and Emeka Ejike, for conniving with one Emmanuel Sunday to kidnap their 88-year-old father, Louis Njoku, in Imo State
The police spokesperson said the arrest of the ‘kidnappers’ was part of the success of the Operation Puff Adder launched nationwide recently by the Inspector-General of Police.
“A pathetic development is that of two siblings, who teamed up with the would-be husband of one of them to abduct their 88-year-old father.
“Chinaza, who wants to get married to Emmanuel, teamed up with her brother, Emeka, to kidnap their father, who is an octogenarian, in what I call a triangular crime arrangement.”
According to Mba, Emmanuel wanted to use the money he would realise from the abduction of his would-be father-in-law to pay the daughter’s bride price.
Mba added, “The suspects were arrested by the operatives of the Anti-Kidnapping Unit of the command on June 29 following a tip-off in connection with the kidnap of the victim.
