By Zuleihat Owuiye, Mamos Nigeria

The Nigerian Police Force has arrested three suspects, including a couple, for faking their own kidnapping in order to extort money from their family members. The couple in Lagos planned to obtain a N5 million ransom, while another individual in Abuja staged his kidnapping to defraud his family. 

The police have warned against the trend of self-kidnapping and emphasized the legal consequences associated with such acts.

 They have also urged the media and social media influencers to verify news before broadcasting it to prevent public panic.
