Undergraduate arrested for faking own kidnap


A 200 level political science student of the Abia State University (ABSU) simply identified as Nnamdi has been arrested for faking his own kidnap.

Nnamdi’s arrest was made by the security personnel of the University.

He was said to have sent a text message to his friend around 3am on Thursday claiming that he has been kidnapped alongside other three students by 6 men carrying AK47 rifles, which turned to be a hoax.

It was gathered that a friend of the suspect and 300 level Mass Communication student; Faith Godson upon receiving a text message from Nnamdi that he had been kidnapped immediately alerted the University security which swung into action and arrested Nnamdi who was hiding in his lodge off the University campus.

The suspect is still in the custody of ABSU security department while the verdict of the university senate is being awaited as at the time of filling this report.
