We brought you news of the Edo Lawmaker’s daughter, Jessica Edionwele who was reportedly kidnapped but found by the FCT police but we did not say how the police got hold of her whereabouts. Well, we just got hold of the real story behind her abduction.
Jessica, on wednesday 7th October left Ibadan, Oyo state where she is currently serving to Lagos in order to board a flight to Abuja to meet her parents. It was confirmed that she was on the flight and the flight landed safely in Abuja but the father could not find her in the airport lobby when he went to pick her up.
While family and friends were terribly worried for what could have befallen the young lady and reported to the right authorities as well as appealed to the public to help in the search, Jessica had reportedly taken an airport taxi to her boyfriend’s place in Lugbe and gave her father’s telephone number to her abductor- cum- boyfriend who claimed that if the honourable wanted his daughter back alive, he should pay a ransom.
FCT Police was told of the recent development and they intensified their search for the ‘missing lady’. However, on Sunday evening, the search yielded the desired fruit – Jessica was found and her abductor was also arrested.
According to a police source, Jessica had collaborated with her boyfriend to extort money from her father by feigning abduction.
We got the information of where she was hiding from someone who had seen Jessica in the neighborhood and afterwards alerted the police, and both of them were seen and arrested in Lugbe
The source said.
When contacted on phone, the FCT spokesperson, Anjuguri Manza, said he was not briefed on the case.
