Okoye claim that he decided to take laws into his hands after several failed effort to recover his money from the victim. He claimed that the victim has the money, but has refused to pay him back.
However, the victim's wife reported to the police station on how her husband had been held in hostage. The police stormed the area and rescued the victim, while arresting the suspect.
The suspect has now been transferred to the Command's Tactical team for investigation and prosecution.
Okoye went too extreme by holding his debtor hostage for such a long period of time, making it look like a Kidnap.
There are several ways he could have gotten Reuben to pay up the debt rather than taking laws into his hands.
He could have reported the case to the police and taken legal actions to seek justice, by taking legal actions the debtor may even be asked to paid him for damages. However taking laws into one's hand has never been the right solution to any problem.
What are your thoughts?
