The Lagos state police command has apprehended two undergraduate companions, Balogun Ayodele and Okuomo Dennis, who orchestrated a fake kidnapping scheme to extort money from their parents.

Dennis proposed the idea of staging Ayodele’s abduction to extort money from his father, who works as a driver at an undisclosed company.

Last month Ayodele vanished from home and subsequently sent his father a text demanding $20,000 ransom via bitcoin for his release, but emerged from hiding after a week in the bush without receiving ransom from their parents

They were eventually arrested after turning themselves in and confessed to the crime during the investigation.
