Two women in Enugu state, southeastern Nigeria are currently being held by the police for planning the abduction of their sick mother, Mrs. Hannah Achime. The duo, Onyinyechi Achime and Akunna Achime, were arrested after one Monday Egbe, 30, confessed that they awarded him the contract to help them abduct the woman so as to obtain money from their elder brother for the treatment of an eye defect the victim is currently battling with.

A report by Gistmania quoted the commissioner of police in the state, Emmanuel Ojukwu, as saying the women, one of whom is preparing for the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) programme, stage-managed their mother’s kidnap. Egbe is the boyfriend to one of the women. The trio was arrested at different dates according to the commissioner. “One Monday Egbe, aged 30 years, was arrested and he confessed how the two of the victim’s daughters, invited him to the business to enable them collect money from their elder brother, one Eric Achime based in Lagos. Suspects all confessed to the crime.” The two ladies later told journalists that they carried out the act after all efforts to raise money for their mother or get money from their elder brother failed. One of the suspects said: “We have been begging our brother to bring money for our mother’s eye treatment but he refused.

image“The eye problem became so much and we had no option; we decided to do that in order to raise money. We took her to a hotel at the Camp and paid for a room there. “I brought my friend and he helped us in arranging the kidnap. He was the one calling our brother, but he refused to bring money; he said the kidnappers can eat her if they liked. “We didn’t hurt her at all; it was all for our mum’s good, though we didn’t tell her. “She got to know later, and she has been begging the police to drop the case. As we speak her medical condition is even getting worse.” Kidnapping for ransom has continued to soar in Nigeria, even prominent citizens are not free. Iyabo Anisulowo, a 65-year old former minister of education, who regained freedom on Tuesday, May 3, had described her experience as “terrible and dehumanising.” Anisulowo was abducted on Wednesday, April 27, along Sawonjo-Iganokoto road in Yewa-South council area of Ogun state.
