Two suspected kidnappers, Sunday Chukwu and Chidokwe Efide have said that the reason they joined kidnapping is because they couldn’t find a job.

The suspects were arrested by the police for allegedly kidnapping a businesswoman, Maris Ibe, in Delta State.

Sunday Chukwu and Chidokwe Efide were caught, after they had collected a whopping sum of One million Naira ransom to free the victim.

Maris Ibe was kidnapped on January 14, 2021, around Ibori Golf Club, Asaba, the state capital.

After the victim was released, she reported her ordeal to the Inspector-General of Police, Adamu Mohammed for Investigation and apprehension of the kidnappers.

The IG’s Intelligence Response Team were deployed in Delta State, after which they recovered, three locally-made guns, an axe, 10 unexpended cartridges and a sum of N320,000 from the suspects.

I used to be a farmer and sand miner before I was introduced to kidnapping and armed robbery by two friends called Ali and Muritala, Chukwuka Said.

The 28 year old said, “They showed me their guns and took me to where they kept them. During the lockdown last year, they relocated to their hometown in Kogi State and left the guns behind.

When things became difficult for me as the lockdown continued, I picked up the guns and called one of my friends, Efibe.

“We talked about forming a kidnapping gang. We then trailed a woman (Ibe) driving a nice car to her house and abducted her at the gate of her house.

We took her into the bush. The woman called her husband and we demanded N500,000.

 “She told her husband to increase the ransom to N1m and warned him not to involve the police. We became friendly with her. We neither beat her nor blindfold her. I collected the money from her salesgirl who brought it. I got N500,000 as my share of ransom and it is still in my back account. I wanted to rent an apartment with it. I was arrested three days after the operation. I have given my life to Christ and I want to turn a new leaf.”

Popular Broadcaster, Daddy Freeze in adultery mess, fined N5m

Published

on

A High Court sitting in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, on February 18, 2021, ordered popular broadcaster, Ifedayo Olarinde, aka Daddy Freeze, to pay the sum of N5m for committing adultery with his lover, Benedicta Elechi.

Daddy Freeze was ordered to pay the money to Paul Odekina, who was married to Elechi at the time the adulterous act was committed.

In the court documents obtained by one of our correspondents, with the suit no PHC/403MC/2012, Mrs Benedicta Nkemdilim Odekina is the Petitioner/Cross Respondent, while Mr Paul Odekina is 1st Respondent/Cross Petitioner and Ifedayo Olarinde (Freeze) is the Co-Respondent to Petition/Cross Respondent.

The presiding Judge, Hon Justice Akpughunum, ruled that the OAP should pay the sum of N5m as “damages for depriving Odekina amiable consort of his wife”.

The document read in part, “The sum of N5,000,000 is awarded against Ifedayo Olarinde as damages for depriving the cross petitioner of the amiable consort of his wife and for injury suffered as a result of his adultery with the petitioner/cross respondent.

The judge then proceeded to dissolve the marriage between Paul and Benedicta due to Benedicta’s adulterous act with Daddy Freeze.

“An order of Decree Nisi is hereby granted, dissolving the marriage contracted between Paul Ochenu Odekina and Benedicta Nkemdilim Elechi-Agunabo on 26/1/2002 at the Chaplaincy of the Holy Rosary CIWA at Port Harcourt on the ground that the marriage has been broken down irretrievably by reason of the Petitioner/ Cross respondent having committed adultery and intolerable behaviour of the petitioner/cross respondent which the respondent cannot be expected to live with the petitioner/cross respondent,” the document had it.

Paul was also granted custody of the children produced in the marriage, while Benedicta was ordered to hand over the children’s passports and birth certificates.

In a phone interview with one of our correspondents, Daddy Freeze confirmed the development but noted that he would release a statement on his Instagram page in due time.

“I will release a statement on my Instagram handle in due time; not today, but in due time. There are things that I want to ensure that I have proper information on before I release my statement.

“Here is my take, watch my Instagram handle. I will address this properly and release my statement but I have to be guarded. I am just discussing with the appropriate quarters how best to address this issue. Please, just watch my Instagram handle. Before the end of next week, I will have a response,” he said.
