After being arrested, Chima John, 37, said he kidnapped his 13-year-old niece, Ijeoma, just to get to his uncle whom he described as stingy. His words: “I took the girl just to revenge for what my uncle did to us. He breached a contract and he is very stingy.
We had a little quarrel in the past on trading business. I did it just to get money from him and I requested for N2.5m. I was on my way to retrieve the ransom, as agreed, when the police apprehended me.”
