FRESH facts have shown that an undergraduate girl actually paid the sum of N10,000 to members of a kidnap gang to abduct her elder brother, in deal that would lead to the demand of N15 million ransom.
Police sources revealed that the girl allegedly perfected the deal with the aid of her girl friend, who assisted in linking up the kidnap gang and the eventual handing over of the N10,000 as advance to the gang.
Ironically, the girl is being trained in the university by the said brother. These disclosures were made as interrogation of the suspects progressed.
Already, the five members of the gang contracted by the girl to carry out the operation, according to the Delta State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Charles Muka have since been arrested and are being interrogated.
The girl, a student in one of the universities had conspired with five others to kidnap her elder brother. They made the first attempt and took away the brother at gun point by the Bonsac area, Asaba but unfortunately for them as they were returning to their base, their vehicle was involved in a accident on the highway, which enabled the victim to escape.
