A 45-year-old woman, Hadijat Muraino, has been arrested by police in Lagos State for allegedly conniving with her lover, Lukmon Ahmed, to fake her own kidnap and demand for N15 million ransom from her husband, Alhaji Kabiru Muraino.
This was revealed on Monday by the Commissioner, Lagos State Police Command, Edgal Imohimi.
Imohim said the woman; Ahmed; the lover’s younger brother, Ahmed Kudos; and another woman, Hadijat Rufai, were arrested after a discreet investigation by police operatives based on the alarm raised by the husband.
The woman, who had told her husband she was taking their daughter, Hamidat Remi, to a psychiatric hospital in Oshodi area of Lagos State, was picked up in one hotel room in Ado-Odo Ota area of Ogun State by police detectives.
It was from the hotel the group called Alhaji Muraino for N15 million ransom.
Hadijat Muraino, who spoke with newsmen at the Lagos State Police Command Headquarters in Ikeja, said she went into the deal because her husband has failed to take care of her and her child.
She said: “Nobody kidnapped me.
“I purposely went to hide in a friend’s house in order to collect money from my husband.
“I told him to give N500,000, he refused to give it to me.
“I didn’t intend to lie.
“It was frustration that led me into it.
“I didn’t demand N15 million from him.
“What I only asked my husband was just N500,000.
“My aged parents need money.
“I couldn’t give them money.
“All my husband is doing is flirting around with women and he abandoned me and my children.
“I am the only one taking care of my sick daughter and her siblings.
“My husband doesn’t care about us.
“He also had houses across the State without minding how we are feeding.
“We started together 27 years ago.
“Unfortunately when he became rich, he left me and married another wife.
“Anytime, I ask my husband for money, he would shout at me and warned me never to come to him again.
“I expected him to talk to me gently if he doesn’t have money, but he would be shouting on me and I thought that if I hide somewhere, I would make money from him, but unfortunately I was arrested.”
Kudos, who confirmed the development to reporters, said his brother had been dating the woman for a long time.
He said: “It was two weeks ago I saw the woman, her daughter and two other persons with my brother at Ado-Odo, but I don’t know what they came to do that fateful day.
“The following day after I saw them, my brother called me on phone to come and meet him somewhere.
“When I got to where he asked me to meet him, I asked him why he is not going to his house.
“When I was talking to my brother, the woman interrupted and said she was taking her daughter to a herbalist place in Otta, but I advised her to take her to a medical hospital, but the woman replied me that it was not hospital issue.
“On Saturday when I went to check the woman at the hotel where they lodged, I met my brother talking to the woman’s husband on phone to demand N15 million.
“It was in the process I collected the phone from my brother and advised the husband to pay them the money so as to secure the release of his wife and daughter.
“It was on Sunday I was preparing to go to the mosque to pray when policemen arrested me and brought me to Ikeja for questioning.”
Imohimi said Alhaji Muraino of Governor’s Road, Ikotun, Lagos State reported at Ikotun Police Station that his wife and daughter, who is of unsound mind, were kidnapped on their way to a psychiatric hospital.
He said the following day he received a phone call from someone who demanded N15 million before they would release them.
Based on this, Imohimi directed the anti-kidnapping squad to ensure their rescue and arrest the suspects.
He said: “Investigation revealed that the kidnappers were making their demands from a community in Ado-Odo Otta Local Government Area of Ogun State.
“The operatives quickly mobilized to the area and busted the camp of the kidnappers.
“The hostages were rescued and two other persons were arrested, while other gang members escaped.
“But the woman confessed that she planned her kidnapped with the suspects arrested to defraud her husband.”

COVID-19: Kwara Govt. Approves N25,000 Daily Allowance For Doctors
The Kwara State Government has approved the payment of a daily N25,000 allowance for doctors in its employ, saying that the stipend is in appreciation for the sacrifices and efforts of frontline health workers in the state’s fight against the deadly coronavirus pandemic.
It said that the allowance payment would cut across all healthcare workers who were involved in the state’s Covid-19 response and that the amount payable to each cader would be determined according to the available categories.
The State Governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, confirmed the approval through a post on his social media page on Tuesday and expressed appreciation for the efforts of healthcare workers in the frontline of the state’s battle against coronavirus.
Abdulrazaq stated that no allowance could pay for the sacrifices being made by medical doctors and other healthcare workers in the state, but added that the daily disbursements would, however, acknowledge the esteem with which the government viewed its frontline respondents.
“We have approved N25,000 as daily allowance for medical doctors and varying daily allowance for other categories of health workers involved in our fight against COVID-19. This is to show appreciation to health workers as it’s impossible to pay them for their priceless sacrifices”, he said.

COVID-19: Share Facts, Not Panic
When the times are uncertain and filled with fears and worry, it is normal to want to share as much information with loved ones as you receive.
It is important, however, to be wary of sharing information that can be misleading or otherwise increase the fear and panic already being experienced by so many people connected to you.
Before you share information, ask yourself the following questions:
1) Where did this message originate from?
2) Does the information tally with information from the World Health Organisation or the NCDC?
3) How will this information affect the person I send this to psychologically?
Some messages can do more harm than good. Please, share only verified information from the NCDC and WHO, to stop the spread of fear, panic, and misinformation.
