The Lagos state police command have apprehended one Ufom Udoh for faking his kidnap in order to defraud his siblings of N60 million. 

According to Lagos state police command’s spokesperson, Olarinde Famous-Cole, Udoh had left his home on July 3rd and connived with his friend, Paul Okiemute, to defraud his brother, Victor Udoh and his other siblings of N60 million (sixty million) by way of faking his own kidnap.


Victor had on July 3rd reported a case of a kidnapped person in Lagos state to the police. The case was then transferred to the state’s anti-kidnapping unit, who during its investigation, traced all calls the complainant got on his phone. This led to the arrest of one Paul Okiemute. When arrested, Okiemute, confessed that Udoh staged his own kidnap to collect money from his elder brother due to his financial problems.

 “Udoh was not kidnapped. It was all planned. He staged his own kidnap so that his elder brother can pay ransom.”the force spokesperson said

The suspect said he made calls to the victim’s elder brother with an unknown number demanding a ransom of N60 million.

“Udoh was later picked up and he confessed to the crime. He said he had checked into a hotel at Iyana-Ipaja area on July 3rd where he spent three nights without food and water. The suspect said he later trekked to Ifo area in Ogun state, only to return to Lagos looking frail for his story to look convincing,” said Famous-Cole said


The police say Udoh and his accomplice would be charged to court soon.
