“On the 20/3/2024, at about 1600hours, the DPO Agbor division received a complaint on the suspected kidnap of a 17year old boy (name withheld) in Okhumera qtrs. Agbor-obi,” the CP stated.

“The suspect forwarded a voice note to his sister stating that he had been kidnapped and the kidnappers were demanding one million naira (#1,000,000).

“The DPO swung into action, acting on a technically generated intelligence, and arrested three suspects. Investigation revealed that the 17 year old connived with his friends and faked his own kidnap.
