Things are happening. SS 1 Student? I give up! Soldiers attached to the 144 Battalion stationed at Ngwa High School, Aba, Abia State have arrested a 30-year-old man identified as Michael Alozie for allegedly conniving with one Nneoma (not real name), an SS.1 student, to fake her kidnap and demand a ransom from her parents.
Alozie, who claimed the student was his girlfriend, was arrested in a hideout at Chokoneze, Mbaise, in Imo State by a team of soldiers, who stormed the village after investigations revealed that he held the victim hostage in the area.
It was learnt that Alozie had earlier threatened the girl’s parents through repeated calls and text messages, demanding a ransom of N1.5m.
