Boy and 17-yr-old girlfriend arrested for faking her kidnap.
A teenage girl alongside her boyfriend in Ogun State has been apprehended for faking her own kidnap .
The 17-year-old female identified as Seun Adekunle, was arrested alongside her 25-year-old boyfriend, Basit Olasunkanmi, after her mother, Bukky Adekunle, notified the police on the 4th of June 2020 that she sent her daughter on an errand to Lafenwa market since on the 1st of June 2020 and has not returned since then.
She further stated that she received a mysterious call two days later who claimed to have abducted the girl and demanding for the sum of N500,000 as ransom.
Mrs Adekunle said the caller warned her to deceit from involving the police if she still needs her daughter alive.
However, a technical and intelligence based investigation led the police to the hideout where the girl and her boyfriend were hiding and pretending to be with kidnappers.
