Eniola Kareem, her husband, Paul Kareem, 23, and his friend, Ayoola Sodiq, 21, were arrested in Lagos, after kidnapping Idris Saheed, 23, and receiving the payment of N100,000 ransom into Paul’s account, from the victim’s parents. .
According Eniola, who claimed to be the brain behind the kidnap, “I called Idris to come to my house after I was told that he was coming to Mowe in Ogun State. I mooted the idea of kidnapping him because I know how rich his parents are.
I told my husband about how we would kidnap him and tie him with a rope. I told him that when he comes to the house, I will do anything he wants.” On his part, Paul said: “I met my wife in a club, where I dance and we started dating. .
The person we kidnapped told my wife that he was coming to the house, thinking she was still single and that was what prompted the kidnap. We did not harm him. The boy is gentle and cooperated with us.”
Speaking, the third suspect, Ayoola Sodiq, said: “I was given N30,000, while Paul took N40,000 and gave N30,000 to his wife.”
