The Ogun State Police Command has arrested a staff of a microfinance bank, Olumide Openaike, for allegedly staging his own kidnap over N1.7 million debt in Abeokuta.

Openaike was reportedly missing but was later found in Mokwa, Niger State, last week.

The wife of the banker, Temitope, had told journalists how his husband, Olumide, went missing on January 17 on his way to work.

But last Thursday, Mrs Openaike hinted journalists that his husband had been found on Tuesday.

But the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Omolola Odutola, said the banker had orchestrated his own abduction in his attempt to escape from refunding one of the bank’s customers.

Speaking over the phone, Odutola said, “Yes, the police have found out that the banker, Olumide Openaike, faked his abduction over N1.7m debt.

The money actually belongs to the bank where he works.

He (Openaike) said he then got depressed and decided to fake his abduction. He is already detained by the police.”(www.naija247news.com).
