A 23-year-old guy planned his kidnapping in Ogun with the intention of forcing his parents to pay N10 million.
Asamoah Ernest, Isiah Uti, Ephraim Anyijor, and Charity Lukpata, along with a 23-year-old guy named Edward Okache, were all detained on October 10 for staging their own kidnapping.

The suspects were detained in response to a report made by Comfort Okache, who claimed over the phone that her younger brother, who had traveled from Calabar to Lagos, had been abducted in the Mowe area of Ogun state and that the kidnappers were demanding N10 million from the boy's family in order for them to see him alive.

Following the report, SP Folake Afeniforo of the DPO Mowe division assembled the tactical teams for the division and moved to the scene. The victim was discovered in an unfinished building with the pair of Ghanaian Asamoah Ernest and Isiah Uti, where he was tied in both hands and legs, after a tedious and exhausting search of the nearby jungle in the Orimerunmu area.

The two suspects found with him were promptly arrested, while the victim was rescued.  But on getting to the station, the two arrested suspects made a shocking revelation that the so called victim was the person who planned with them to kidnap him in order for him to extort money from his parents to invest on an online business.

They stated further that the so called victim was introduced to them by Ephraim Anyijor and Charity Lukpata who are from the same Yala local government area of crossriver as the victim, and that they all are all part of the planned kidnap of Edward Ochace. 

Their confession led to the arrest of Ephraim Anyijor and charity Lukpata. They have all confessed to the commission of the crime.'' SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, spokesperson of the state police command, said

Oyeyemi added that the state Commissioner of Police, CP Lanre Bankole, has directed that the suspects be transferred to the anti-kidnapping unit of the state Criminal Investigation Departments for further investigation and possible prosecution.
