The operatives of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Police Command have arrested one Ulagu Philemon Chukwuma, 29, for allegedly masterminding the kidnap of his boss’ son, Justin Nwakwo, 12, on February 10, 2024, in Jabi, Abuja.

According to police spokesperson, Philemon, a domestic worker, who serves as a Chef to the Nwakwo family, was arrested by officers of the Utako Police Divisional Headquarters that were following up on investigations to rescue the abducted boy and also to arrest the perpetrators.
“Investigations by the Police revealed that the principal suspect, who has since confessed to the crime, conspired with one Mc Donald Arinze, currently at large to commit the crime. “The suspects had earlier forcefully obtained a cash sum of N3,900,000 as ransom from the victim’s father. The arm of the law however caught up with the criminals following intensified efforts by the Police.
“The boy was rescued unhurt and reunited with his parents. The cash sum earlier extorted was equally recovered.
“While effort is still ongoing to apprehend the suspects at large, the Commissioner of Police, FCT, CP Benneth C. Igwe, wishes to reiterate his unflinching commitment to ensure the safety of all in the Territory.
“He equally encouraged  residents to involve the Police in the profiling of their domestic workers, noting the new trend and pattern of kidnapping by domestic workers.” Adeh said.
