The suspect was arrested by men of the Rapid Respond Squad after a thorough and intensive investigation, according to ASP Sunday Abutu, who paraded the suspect alongside her cronies on Wednesday in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital.

On November 20, 2021, RRS operatives received a distress call from Nana saying she had been kidnapped by unknown gunmen along the Ifaki-Oye-Ekiti road, according to him.

“On 20/11/2021 at about 1030hrs, a distress call was received from one *Sule Nana* ‘f’ that she was kidnapped by unknown gunmen along Ifaki/Oye-Ekiti road alongside other passengers,” Abutu stated.

“She called her husband that the kidnappers were demanding for a sum of fifty thousand naira (#50,000:00) ransom before she could be released. The RRS Operatives, upon the receipt of the complaint, swung into action by combing the bush along Ifaki/Oye-Ekiti before it was later discovered that Sule Nana kidnapped herself to get money from her relatives. She has confessed to the commission of the crime,” he told the media.

The suspect admitted to the crime and stated that she planned her own kidnapping in order to extort money from her husband and relatives.

“I needed some money but I could not see any helper and I decided to plan my abduction where I will collect ransom. I called my husband to demand N50,000 ransom and in the process, I was arrested,” she said.
