Three secondary school students have been arrested for allegedly faking a kidnapping in Enugu state, the police have said.

Ebere Amaraizu, police spokesperson in the state, disclosed this in a statement on Friday.

Amaraizu told NAN that the students of the Enugu-based secondary school had demanded a ransom of N500, 000.

He said that the police through its anti-kidnapping unit had begun an investigation to unravel the circumstances behind the alleged incident.

“It was gathered that on July 11, one Nebeife Nnamdi aged about 17 years, who is a Senior Secondary School (SSS) – 3 student of an Enugu-based secondary school, had been allegedly abducted by gunmen,” he said.

“Later, there was a demand of N500,000 ransom from his alleged abductors. Following the development, the operatives of the command’s Anti-Kidnapping Unit swung into action.

“The Anti-Kidnapping Unit through intelligence information nabbed Ene Chigozie Steven, Okafor Okechukwu and Nebeife Nnamdi, who is said to have been kidnapped, on July 14 at about 2:30 p.m., at their hideout at Trans-Ekulu within Enugu metropolis.

“They have revealed that the alleged kidnap was faked by them to collect money from the alleged kidnapped victim’s father and are currently regretting their evil action,” the police spokesperson said.

He said the suspects had been helping the police in their investigation.
