Nigerian Boy and His Malaysian Girlfriend Arrested For Faking Their Kidnap

A Malaysian national and her Nigerian boyfriend were arrested for allegedly faking her own kidnap to get a ransom of US$500,000 (N76,124,988) from her father on Saturday.

Selangor state Criminal Investigation Department chief, SAC Mohd Adnan Abdullah told local media on Tuesday that the 23-year-old woman and her 20-year-old Nigerian boyfriend were picked up at the lobby of a hotel in Penang on the same day.
The woman’s father took a call from a man claiming that her daughter and her boyfriend were abducted and demanded a ransom for their release at about 3pm, Mohd Adnan told reporters.

He said the woman’s father, who was then in Kuching, lodged a police report shortly after.

“The couple, who studied at a local private university, planned to use the ransom money for their daily expenses and education,” he told reporters.

He said no money changed hands when both suspects were arrested and they were remanded at the Kajang police station until July 30 to facilitate investigations under Section 3 of the Kidnapping Act 1961.
