A 14-year-old girl, identified as Kosisochukwu Anioma, who happens to be the daughter of Frank Anioma, Aide to ex-Governor of Enugu State, Chimaroke Nnamani, has confessed to the Police Command in Enugu State that she faked her own kidnap to spend time with her boyfriend in Imo State.
Kosisochukwu’s father, Anioma, had taken to social media to announce his daughter’s disappearance and kidnap. He also reported to the police, who then took quick charge of the disturbing report.
On Saturday, the command’s Public Relations Officer, SP Ebere Amaraizu, said in a statement in Enugu that on August 22, the fake kidnap alarm was raised and the police operatives of the Anti-Kidnap Unit swung into action promptly.
“According to her, both of them have been secondary school friends at Abakiliki but she needed to go see him following the prolonged school holiday.
“Kosisochukwu, 14, is going to SSS 1 if school reopens, same with her boyfriend who hails from Owerri in Imo State,” Amaraizu said.
"Kosisochukwu also confessed that she was not abducted or kidnapped as stated by her father.”
Contrary to the social media hype and awareness created, fresh reports from the investigation suggest that the kidnapping incident was merely purported and Kosisochukwu was never abducted by anyone. She willingly left her home.
Kosisochukwu went to a motor park, and without telling anyone, headed to Owerri where she met her boyfriend.
