“In a follow-up investigation, the victim was rescued in Madobi LGA and the wife, who was earlier divorced by the husband, confessed to having planned the kidnapping of her daughter.”

Speaking to newsmen after she was paraded, the suspect said her ex-husband did not give her money to feed the children for over 10 months so she decided to do that to get money to take care of his children.

“I called him and told him that our daughter was missing and we went to the police together and reported the matter. Inside the police station, I gave him the number of the guy that will receive the ransom,” she said.

She said she regretted her actions and announced that she had reconciled with her husband.
