Police, kidnappers connive, abduct housewife, demand N40m –Keyamo

Lagos-based lawyer, Festus Keyamo, has accused the Delta State Police Command of conniving with kidnappers and attempting to cover up their crime.

Keyamo, who urged the Inspector General of Police (IG), Ibrahim Idris, to carry out a thorough investigation into the kidnap of a housewife, believed that N5 million ransom paid by his client, Prince Ovwighodua Odebala, for his wife’s release, went into the pockets of some policemen.

According to him, the kidnapper had earlier demanded N40 million ransom.

Keyamo explained that his client’s wife was abducted a few days after a policeman, Ntafiong, attached to Sapele Police Station, allegedly demanded N1 million from Prince.

He said: “This particular officer is notorious in that division for demanding monies from prominent people in the area with threats.

The officer forwarded the wife’s account number using phone number 08035090466.

The account details are: Ann Onokurhefe, 0047238018, GTBank.” Prince allegedly didn’t understand why he should part with a whooping amount, thus refused.

Keyamo said: “The police officer told him clearly that if anything happened to him or members of his family in Sapele, he would be on his own.

Three days later, Prince Odebala’s wife was kidnapped.” The victim was released after almost 10 days in the kidnappers’ den.

“While in the kidnappers’ den, the kidnappers informed our client’s wife that her husband has so much money that he even bought phones for his girlfriends.

They mentioned the dates of the purchases. Incidentally, these are facts known only to one Joel, a close confidant of Prince Odebala,” Keyamo added.

The lawyer said when Prince reported his wife’s abduction to the DPO of Sapele Police Division, the officer took him to the Commissioner of Police, Delta State.

The Commissioner of Police called Ntafiong and simply asked him to release Prince’s wife.

Keyamo noted: “Our client was amazed that even the Commissioner of Police knew the involvement of this police officer in this crime but could treat such a serious matter with kid’s glove.

Ntafiong was detained shortly and thereafter released.” When contacted on the phone, the Police Commissioner, Ibrahim, said he was shocked at the allegation levelled against any police officer under his watch.

Ibrahim denied knowledge of the case, contrary to Keyamo’s claims that the matter was brought before him.

He said: “If a policeman is alleged to be a kidnapper and the matter was brought before me and I didn’t act on it or do anything about it, it means I’m also a kidnapper. I don’t know of such a case. This is first time I’m hearing of such allegation.”
