Lady Kidnaps 4yrs old Boy So Her Boyfriend Can Get Millions To Pay Her Bride Price


When a tribe makes it too difficult for young men to be able to pay bride price, considering the huge amount they are also expected to spend on the marriage proper, you will continue to have such mess.

These kidnappers of a four-year-old-boy, Steve Kanu, in Abeokuta have confessed that a ransom of N1m was paid to them before he was rescued. The young Steve was kidnapped at his parents’ home at Laderin Estate, Abeokuta, on Monday, November 2, 2015.

He was, however, rescued alive last Friday by the men of the Ogun State Police Command, who swooped on the kidnappers at Nsukka, Enugu State, and rescued the boy alive.

Dr. and Mrs. Mucipay Kanu, beamed with smile when they appeared with their son at the police command headquarters in Eleweran, Ogun State, on Monday.

The suspects arrested for the crime were also paraded by the Commissioner of Police, Abdulmajid Ali. They are: Kenechukwu Amoke (21), Anayo Amoke (35), Oluchi Asadu (20), Maureen Uchenna (25).

Maureen, who was a staff nurse in Dr. Mucipay Kanu’s hospital in Abeokuta for over three years before she resigned in July this year, was said to have planned the abduction of Steve with her boyfriend, Obinna Amoke, who is currently on the run.

Maureen said she regretted being part of the kidnapping
She said, “I learnt that Doctor paid N1m ransom to one of our members in Abeokuta before the police detectives arrested us in Enugu.

“I regretted my action, but it was my boyfriend, who wanted to travel abroad and wanted to pay my bride price, that put pressure on me to commit this crime.”

The commissioner, while parading the suspected kidnappers, said the manhunt for Obinna was on.

“The boy was kept for eight days in Anayo Amoke’s residence in Isale Ibefun in Abeokuta, before he was moved to Nsukka, where they kept him in Oluchi Asadu’s house,” the CP said.
