A 16-year old girl, Victory, was recently abducted by a man she befriended through Facebook.
The 24-year old kidnap suspect, Michael Duda, was yesterday, paraded in Benin, Edo State. Micheal, an OND graduate of Business Administration from the Federal Polytechnic Auchi, said he got to know Victory after she accepted his friend’s request.
He said as their friendship grew stronger, he decided to invite her to his house which she accepted. He however denied that he abducted her against her wish, adding that both of them planned her kidnap to raise money.
The teenage kidnap victim said Micheal invited her to come to his house, less than a month of becoming friends on Facebook. She said getting there, Michael abducted her and kept her for four days, raped her and also demanded for N4 million for her release.
Michael however denied demanding for N4 million ransom, saying that he demanded for just N2 million. “We planned to collect money from her father to raise money for our marriage but I did not collect the money again. She stayed in my house for four days,” he said.
