A Nigerian lady who was arrested by the Nigerian police for staging her own kidnap, has now stated that she did it to find out if her sister truly loves her.
37-year-old woman, Torkwase Queen Ayakpa, was arrested by men of the FCT police command for allegedly staging her own kidnap.
Torkwase Queen Ayakpa was one of 24 suspects paraded by the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) police command for various offenses on the 29th of July 2020. Commissioner of Police Bala Ciroma said other suspects were arrested for armed robbery, cultism, car theft and fraud.
Ayakpa, who is a hairstylist, is said to have conspired with one Fidelis Ikule, to stage her kidnap.
According to her, she did it to extort N20, 000 from her sister because her hairstyling business was no longer doing well due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Ayakpa, a native of Benue state and Fidelis, were arrested after the police traced the calls they were making for the ransom to Fidelis’s house in Mashafa Village, Mpape, Abuja, where they were holding up.
