A suspected kidnapper, Tochukwu Nworih, has been arrested by the police while withdrawing ransom money at a POS centre in Akure, Ondo State capital.

Nworih and his gang abducted a six-year-old girl in her mother’s vehicle while the mother was buying some groceries.

The suspect, who called the parents of the victim, allegedly demanded N50 million as ransom and it was paid into an account.

The State Police Spokesperson, SP Funmi Odunlami, who confirmed the incident in a statement on Saturday, January 7, said the suspect was nabbed by detectives while trying to withdraw his share of the ransom at a Point of Sales terminal, POS, in Akure, the state capital.

Odunlami explained that the victim’s mother, Mrs Chukwu-Ezedima, met an empty car and reported the incident to the police after all efforts to locate the daughter yielded no results.

The police spokesperson said, “During interrogation, the suspect confessed to the commission of the offence, while the victim was rescued unhurt. The suspect will soon be arraigned in court.”

She also disclosed that the arrest of Nworih led to the discovery of the little girl in the kidnappers’ den and she was rescued by the security operatives unhurt.
