The Public Relations Officer of the Lagos State Police Command, Benjamin Hundeyin, announced this development in a statement released on Friday.

According to the statement, “Detectives of the Lagos States Police Command have arrested Margret Itodo ‘f’ aged 25, Agnes Ogbeh ‘f’ aged 23, Esther Anyanwu ‘f’ aged 24 and Anthony Chinakwe ‘m’ aged 24 for faking the kidnap of Agnes Ogbeh.

“On March 19, 2024, Agnes Ogbeh, resident in Akure, had travelled to Lagos and was reportedly kidnapped in Lagos.

“The family back in Akure received a video showing Agnes and one other tied, gagged, and groaning with blood droplets around them.

“The ‘kidnappers’ demanded N5m for the release of Agnes.

“Upon receipt of the complaint, detectives of the command commenced a discreet and diligent investigation into the matter.

“The hideout was located where Agnes, the other lady in the video and two others were found living freely together.

“Further investigations revealed that Margaret Itodo is a professional make-up artist who was hired to make the video look real.”

The statement concluded that all four suspects have provided confessional statements and will face charges upon the completion of the investigation.
