Mrs. Joy Sunday, a 40-year-old lady who was detained by the police in Akwa Ibom State on suspicion of conspiring to kidnap her husband, said on Friday that she took part in the act since her husband had deprive her of sex and money for an excessive amount of time. City Round learned that the kidnappers first sought N10 million as ransom, but eventually lowered their demands to N2 million, which was paid before the police detained them as they were splitting the booty. The suspect, who was one of 29 others paraded by the state commissioner of police, Olatoye Durosinmi, in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, for various offenses including kidnapping, robbery, and child theft, claimed she had been forced to work menial jobs to support herself and the children ever since her husband wed another woman.
She said, “I arranged my husband’s kidnapping because for a long time he abandoned me with his children. Even when my father and mother in-law were alive he abandoned me. He never cared for his children. I did a menial jobs such as weeding people’s farms to feed my children and pay their school fees.
“One of the children completed secondary school and I approached my husband to plan how to send him to learn a trade since he refused to send him to university but his husband shunned me. The major reason I arranged his kidnap is that because he refused to have sex with me and does not take care of me and the children.”
She added that she never collected her share of the money before they were arrested by the police
