The Nigerian Police arrested 36-year-old Cyril Isong, a graduate of Information Technology from Minna Federal University in Niger State, who kidnapped a federal lawmaker.
According to Vanguard, Isong stated that he chose to kidnap for two reasons; to maintain the living standards of his family and get rid of personal grievances.
In addition to members of the House of Representatives, he has other victims, but the suspect admitted that he kidnapped the members because he used the money to seduce his wife when he (Isong) was unable to take care of his family anymore.
One year after member of the House of Representatives was kidnapped, the suspect was arrested by agents in Akwa Ibom State.
It is said that before the member of house of rep was released, he found 2,000 U.S. dollars and N65,000 in the legislator’s car and pocket, as well as other valuables.
After his release, the unidentified lawmaker immediately petitioned the Inspector General of Police, explaining that he received a call on August 4, 2020.
He stated that the caller (Sani) claimed he had some health challenges and was advised to contact the lawmaker who was working directly with the Speaker of the House of Representatives and in charge of the affairs of former members of the house.
“On the agreed date, he came and we tied him up. I did not speak throughout so that he wouldn’t recognise my voice. We searched him and took all the valuables and cash found on him. He refused to call his family for more money. Rather, he requested our account number. But I knew that would implicate us. So, we untied him and allowed him to go. We did not beat him. It was at the police station that I learnt the boys that I hired took some dollars from his car” the suspect narrated.
