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 his girlfriend Nneoma (real names
withheld), an SS.1 student, to fake her kidnap and demand a ransom from
Michael 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
teenage girl hostage in his place. It was said that he had earlier threatened the girl’s parents through
repeated calls and text messages, demanding a ransom of N1.5million.
It gathered that during interrogation, Alozie claimed he planned to
marry the student and blamed his friend, now at large, for sending
threat messages to her parents, demanding ransom.
The suspect allegedly impregnated the student in the course of their relationship.
However, the parents who didn’t know that
their daughter agreed to her own kidnap and got pregnant for the
suspect, agreed to pay N1m as ransom.
While agreeing to pay the ransom, the parents alerted soldiers who
traced the suspect to their hideout at Chokoneze, Mbaise, where the girl
was also arrested.
A medical report made available to Southern City News revealed that the
teenage girl was confirmed to be five months pregnant for her boyfriend.

the comic actor.
An Ikeja High Court ordered the agency to pay the sum
of N25 million as damages for unlawfully detaining him and also tender a
public apology to him. None of this ever happened and in 2013, a Court
of Appeal sitting in Igbosere, Lagos, quashed the judgement of the high
court, saying there was no evidence to attract such.
