Meshack Felix, a waiter at a restaurant in the Ebute-Metta area of Lagos, has demanded a ransom of N600,000 for his boss’ son whom he abducted.
Mary Chidi, the mother of the child, reported the matter to the police saying she suspected Felix was behind the kidnap of her son from the restaurant at Dog Kennel in the Railway Compound.
Edgal Imohimi, the Lagos state Police Commissioner told journalists in a press briefing that the suspect had texted Chidi a diamond bank account number 0081873532 belonging to one Chinecherem Felix.
He said the Anti-Kidnapping Squad traced the suspect and his victim to Lokpanta Autonomous Community of Umu-Nneochi LGA, Abia state, where they were arrested.
The CP said the suspects will be charged to court as soon as investigation is concluded.
