Woman Kidnaps Her Niece Over N30,000

Enyolam Believe, a 43-year-old Ghanaian, who has been living in Lagos for the past 17 years, has been arrested for allegedly kidnapping her 8-year-old niece, on Tuesday, in the Ikotun area of Lagos, Punch reports.

She for conspiring with her friend, Agatha Aigbomiam, to commit the crime. The victims was alleged to have been kidnapped on her way to school and taken to Ogun State by Aigbomiam.

The victim was said to have raised the alarm which drew the attention of residents, leading to the arrest of both suspects. A police source said, “The suspect and the girl’s mother are sisters.

Believe, however, colluded with her friend, Aigbomiam, to abduct the girl so that she could make money from the mother. Their plan was that the friend would kidnap the child and hide her somewhere in Ogun State, while she would negotiate the ransom with the mother on the phone.

When the girl went missing, the girl’s mother called her and they both searched for the girl. She even suggested that they should report the case to the police. The mother never suspected that she was behind the kidnap.”

Believe said, “I have my own children. I needed money badly that time and I thought of different ideas, which didn’t work. So, I decided to kidnap my sister’s daughter and demand N30,000 ransom from her. I don’t know what came over me.”

Aigbomiam, a 42-year-old trader from Ekpoma, Edo State, said Believe asked her to kidnap the victim after she returned from a surgery in Benin. Her words: “She said she wanted to use the girl to collect some money from her sister.

She just showed me the girl’s school and I kidnapped her around 7.30am on Tuesday, while she was going to school. I was stupid for doing such a thing.” The state Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, said the suspects would be arraigned in court at the end of investigation.
