It was further reported that a member of Chizoba’s family broke the news of her kidnap and subsequent demand for a ransom of N2m, to the Inspector General of Poice (IGP) Adamu Mohammed.
This was followed by the discovery that the whole kidnap was staged all along and simply an effort to extort money from her family members.
Speaking in an interview, the arrested teacher denied staging her kidnap and made claims that her boyfriend Ezema, who also happened to be among her accomplices, hypnotized her.
“I am a primary school teacher. I was formerly married and I had three children with my former husband. I met Ezema on Facebook and he told me he is a fashion designer and I told him that I have some jobs for him and from that point, we started a relationship. At one point in our relationship, we discoursed about traveling out of the country and he told me that he had once spent N300,000 for a traveling visa which did not work out”, she said
