The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Police Command has arrested a pregnant woman for allegedly faking her own kidnapping and extorting N2 million from her husband.

Commissioner of Police, Bennett Igweh, revealed the arrest on Wednesday, stating that the suspect was apprehended following a complaint lodged by her husband, Chiedozie Ubah.

According to Igweh, on March 11, Chiedozie Ubah reported at the Dei-Dei police station in Abuja that his pregnant wife had left for a hospital appointment but failed to return home.

Shortly after, Mr. Ubah received a distressing call from his wife, claiming she had been kidnapped and that her captors were demanding a ransom of N2 million for her release.
