Bukola Ogun, 37, said she planned her own kidnap in order to scare her husband into relocating her and children to the U.S.

The Oyo State Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Odude, said, while parading the suspect on Friday, that Ogun conspired with 3 other persons, including her cousin, to arrange the crime.

He said, “The Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the command arrested a business woman who conspired with a three-man gang to orchestrate her own kidnap in order to fraudulently obtain money from her husband, Kayode.

The incident happened on July 4, 2017, when three armed hoodlums stormed the residence of the supposed victim and kidnapped her. Barely four hours later, the suspects contacted the husband and demanded a N10m for her release.

The husband, who did not know that it was all arranged by his wife, contacted the police and a manhunt was launched for the hoodlums. Two male suspects were later arrested.”

The suspects arrested are Kayode Adepoju and Olalekan Anafi. Ogun said that her husband, who has dual citizenship of Nigeria and the US, worked for the stock exchange and that the whole thing started like a joke. She added that she lodged herself in a hotel.

“I just woke up one day and thought of a way to make my husband see reason why he should use his American citizen status to take me out of the country. It all started like a child’s play.

I told my supposed abductors to tell my husband that the ransom was N10m although I knew he would not be able to pay such money. He is just a salary earner. I lodged myself in a hotel and I was there for two days.

I went back home on the third day and no ransom was paid.” The husband, who resided in the US for many years before returning home a few years ago, had already begun the process of relocating the family to the US but the wife thought the process was too slow.

They have been married for six years and blessed with two children.

While speaking on his role in the whole case, Mrs Ogun’s cousin, Kayode, said the woman just called her one day, informing him that she wanted to stage her own kidnap so that her husband would agree to relocate her to the United States since he is a citizen.

“So she told me to find one of my friends who has a car and we would come to her house in the evening of the day we wanted to stage the kidnap.

“After that, we called her husband, asking for N10million ransom, just to make the whole plan look real, but we didn’t collect anything from him.

“However, I was arrested the following day after she returned home; policemen came to my office to arrest me, and we had no option than to tell the police the truth,” Kayode said.

The Oyo police boss, however, said that the suspects would be charged to court as soon as possible so as to serve as a lesson to others who might be planning such stunts.

Watch the video below, then read details of the investigation...

INVESTIGATION: How Redeemed Church officials allegedly duped members of millions in housing scheme

When Oluyemi Ojudu, a civil servant, registered for a housing scheme initiated by a parish in one of Nigeria’s largest Pentecostal churches, the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, in Abuja, he thought it was the beginning of the end of paying exorbitant rent to landlords.

“It is the desire of everybody to be land owners. It is a dream of everyone in Abuja to have a place they can call their own and stop paying rent as tenants to landlords,” he told PREMIUM TIMES.
Land and other properties in Abuja are perhaps the costliest in the country. Many workers, desirous of owning properties in the city or surrounding neighbourhoods, often take part in housing schemes which allow them to make payments in installments over a period of time.

In 2009, the Excellent Men Fellowship, EMF, a group in the Resurrection Chapel Parish of the RCCG, Lugbe, Abuja where Mr Ojudu lived, announced it was starting its own property acquisition scheme for married men in the church.

The scheme was also thrown open to members of the RCCG from other parishes as long as they are given letters of introduction from their pastors.

Ordinarily, Mr. Ojudu who worshipped at another RCCG parish in the Gwarimpa area of Abuja, would have hesitated before subscribing to such property scheme due to the frequency at which people were being duped. But this was one his church was organizing. The church couldn’t possibly defraud its members, he thought.

He was wrong.

Remember that Nigerian orphan girl who graduated as the best medical student in Sudan in 2016?  Read HEREShe is now fully inducted into the Medical and Dental council of Nigeria today 13th July 2017. 

Dr Abdulkadir Islamiyat Oluwatoyin successfully wrote the Nigerian Medical and Dental licensing Exam in April at the Lagos University Teaching hospital (LUTH) held for the foreign trained doctors. 

The result came out and she proved her self yet again. Out of 334 foreign trained candidates she passed with a distinction and scored the highest in their clinical exams. 

The induction took place today and she is now officially a licensed medical doctor in Nigeria- her first home country just like she is in Sudan- her second home country.  

She took the oath today where her license was presented to her by the honorable minister of health- Prof Isaac Adewolu. 

Dr Abdulkadir Islamiyat Oluwatoyin vowed to uphold her duties as a doctor and to discharge her duties passionately as she starts another delicate journey in my life. 

We celebrate her today and  hope she serves as model to other young girls out there.  Let’s all congratulate her and wish her well. She deserves to be celebrated. 

See more photos from her induction ceremony which was held today...

Congratulations name sake, best wishes.


The Lagos police have arrested a man who attempted to defraud his brother by staging his own kidnap.

Public Relations Officer of the Lagos Police command, ASP Olarinde Famous-Cole said  one Victor Udoh reported to the command that his younger brother, Ufom Edet Udoh, was kidnapped by unknown persons at Liverpool in Apapa area of Lagos state.

Famous-Cole said men of the command’s Anti-kidnapping Squad quickly swung into action and traced a call the complainant received on his phone.

This led to the arrest of one Paul Philips Okiemute, who reported the case at the work place of the supposed victim.

Okiemute, upon questioning confessed that Udoh staged his own kidnap to collect money from his elder brother due to his financial problems.

“Udoh was not kidnapped, that it was all a planned attempt to stage his own kidnap so that he can be paid ransom by his elder brother,” he said.

The suspect said he made calls to the victim’s elder brother with an unknown number demanding a ransom of N60,000,000.

Ufom Edet Udoh who was later picked up  confessed to committing the crime.

He said he had checked into an hotel at Iyana-Ipaja area on July 3, where he spent three nights without food and water.

Udoh added that he later trekked to Ifo area in Ogun state, only to return to Lagos looking frail so his story could sound believable.

Fatai Owoseni, Lagos state Commissioner of Police, has ordered the suspects be charged to court immediately,

Owoseni said their arrest should serve as a deterrent to others who are likely to cause breach of peace in the state.


A man named Wasiu has been arrested for allegedly selling his wife and daughter for N270,000 to ritualists in Lagos. 

According to social media user (adaslimshow) who shared the sad story, the man revealed that the deal was originally N200,000 for the wife alone as the ritualists asked whether he could add his daughter for N70,000 - a deal which he agreed to.

The man's mother-in-law can bee seen in the picture below getting agitated over the whereabouts of her daughter and grand-daughter.

According to Ada, the man tried to escape arrest severally, but he was eventually arrested at a church in Ajah where he was hiding.

After receiving mild beatings from the wife's family, the man was finally handed over to the police who took him away in a patrol van.

Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose, has called on Acting President Yemi Osinbajo to disclose the true health status of President Muhammadu Buhari or he will release 11 pictures of the ailing President.
Addressing journalists in Abuja on Wednesday, he insisted that the President is critically ill, contradicting Osinbajo that the President is recuperating.
It’s been 65 days since the President proceeded on indefinite medical leave in London.
The governor who insisted that the president is incapacitated, challenged the acting President to display pictures and short videos of his meeting with the President in London last Tuesday, just as he described Osinbajo’s visit as diversionary.
