The Edo State Police Command has rescued a Spanish, Jose Anthonio Murili Turrillo who was kidnapped and held captive in a hotel room in Benin City since last Saturday by his Nigerian lover.
The victim was said to have been lured from Spain by his 28 year-old lover, along with one Kenny Oyemwina, 25. They held the Spanish man hostage and took all of his money.
The Police said “investigations revealed that the female suspect is the Spanish lover who lured him from Spain to Nigeria and he was made to withdraw all the money he had in his account.
“When the two suspects discovered that their victim had no money on him and in his account again, they forcefully asked him to call his sister in Spain to send €2000 to them before he will be allowed to go back to Spain.”
The sister of the victim however “reported to INTERPOL Spain who contacted the Nigerian INTERPOL who in turn contacted Edo State Command.”
According to the Police Commissioner, the two suspects have been arrested and would soon be prosecuted.
