An Indian man living in Abuja, Mishall Vishwanath, has been arrested by the Anti-Kidnap squad of the Nigerian Police force for arranging his own kidnap. According to a police report, 46 years old Mishall left his residence in Abuja and traveled to Enugu state where he got someone to call his employer, saying he had been kidnapped and will only be released if a ransom of N10 million was paid.
His employer eventually agreed to pay N7million for his release and the money was paid into an account provided by his accomplice. When Mishal went to the bank on Thursday February 12 to pick up the loot, he was immediately arrested by men of the Enugu State Police command.
Police say the Criminal investigation Department (CID) of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) is still carrying out investigations into the matter
