If I die, my blood is on your head – Woman kidnapped by physically challenged son cries


LAST Sunday, we broke the story of a physically challenged barber, who allegedly abducted his mother, Mrs. Kate Emienor, in Edo State and demanded N20 million ransom from members of his family for her release.

The story sounded like fiction to many, who could not fathom how a son could abduct his own mother and ask for ransom. Delta State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Ikechukwu Aduba, however, confirmed the story, adding that the police rescued the mother and seized the suspect.

Sunday Vanguard spoke with the woman kidnapped by her own son. Excerpt:

Mrs Kate and her son, Obehi
Mrs Kate and her son, Obehi

What is your name?

Do you know what happened?
I do not know. I had  reached his house when he told me and I replied him I could  not be part of such a plan. He said I should sit down and that nothing will happen to me. I told him no, I would not be able to stay with him. I cried and cried that I wanted  to go home, but he was begging me to stay.

Was he the only one you saw while you were in his house or some of his friends came to visit him?
I was the only one in the house with him.

What food were you eating?
He cooked food, but I could not eat it

What food did he cook?
Sometimes he will  cook rice, yam and other things

Your son, Obehi, said he brought you to his house to make his brother outside the country to bring money to cater for you. Did he tell you that?

He did not tell me.
