According to him, the suspect had earlier given false information that the victim sold his property amounting to about N9 million and did not want to remit same amount to him.

The anti-kidnapping boss said that Bassey had borrowed about N1.2 million from the victim whose niece, Ruth Edem, 22, a 200 level student of the University of Calabar, he is dating.

A source who pleaded anonymity, said that the victim, a Lafarge staff, and the bread winner of her family, only wanted to help the suspect by supporting him with some money to boost his palm oil business.

“My sister needed to return the money back to where she got it because it is not her own, but the suspect refused, instead he turned the whole thing around, claiming to have given my sister a house document to sell and my sister absconded with the proceeds of N9 million.
