Akwa Ibom Lover Stages Own Kidnap, Demands N4m Ransom



In a shocking twist of events, the Akwa Ibom State Police Command has cracked down on a dramatic case of alleged kidnapping, only to reveal a startling truth – it was all a ploy concocted by a young couple.

Imaobong Sampson and her boyfriend, Beltus Ebong, found themselves in cuffs after attempting to deceive authorities in Mbierebe Obio village, Ibesikpo Asutan Area. The pair allegedly staged their own abduction, sending shockwaves through the community.

According to Police Public Relations Officer, Odiko Macdon, the duo’s scheme involved a demand for a staggering N4 million ransom from Imaobong’s family. However, their grand plan unraveled swiftly as law enforcement swiftly intervened.

Imaobong’s confession left jaws dropping as she admitted to orchestrating the entire charade alongside her beau and others. The motive? A desperate bid to extract money from her unsuspecting aunt, residing beyond Nigerian borders.
