The suspect who lodged in a hotel with the aid of an accomplice, contacted his mum and demanded ₦6million as ransom.
It was the suspect's elder brother who reported the abduction to the police. He claimed that Obinna went to buy recharge card that evening, when the incident occurred.
However, the police were able to track them through the account of one Chinaza Favour Ukaigwe, whose bank account was used to receive the ransom of 200k. Chinaza claim that Obinna came to His shop and requested that he should give his bank account to enable them use and receive his younger sister's school fees.
It was very easy for the police to arrest the suspect, because they received the money through a traceable bank account. Maybe this is why some kidnappers always demanded that their victims bring the money in cash Instead.
However, this should serve as a lesson to some of us, to stop giving out our account details to people to receive money, because you may not know where the money is coming from.
It is safer not to give out your account details, than to fall a victim.
