The Lagos State Police Command has arrested a 30-year-old man, Uchenna Daniels, over the kidnap of a girl, Hannatu Kabri.
PUNCH Metro gathered that Daniels abducted the victim in Kaduna and fled to Lagos, where he was arrested.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, during a parade at the command headquarters, Ikeja, said the suspect was tracked and arrested at Allen Avenue, Ikeja.
“The suspect revealed that the victim’s boyfriend, one Ahmed, and one Biliya, planned the kidnap with him and collected a ransom of N2m in Kaduna through a Bureau de Change from the parents of the victim before she was released on March 28, 2022.
