Nasarawa State Police Command has arrested a woman, Paulina Santos, who allegedly planned to kidnap the mother of her friend whose husband works with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC)
While being paraded on Wednesday, February 19, 2020, the State Commissioner of Police, Bola Longe, said the suspect was arrested on February 11 by police operatives attached to the Command’s Anti-Kidnapping unit.
Longe said the suspect, who hails from Ogbadigbo Local Government Area of Benue State, was a resident of Azuba Bashayi, Lafia North Development Area of Nasarawa State.
The suspect, who works as a casual staff in a Primary Health Care Facility, reportedly contacted someone to help her organize a criminal gang that would execute the kidnapping.
“On February 11, at about 2030hrs, based on credible intelligence, police operatives attached to the Command’s Anti-Kidnapping section busted and subsequently arrested one Paulina Santos ‘f’ who had conceived a disingenuous plan to kidnap the mother of her bosom friend,” Longe said.
The CP said that the suspect confessed to the crime and that she would be arraigned in court upon completion of investigation.
