The Police have arrested one of the suspected kidnappers of Toyin Nwosu, wife of The Sun Deputy Managing Director, Steve Nwosu. The suspect, Odo Sylvester, who is a 200 level student of Kogi State University denied being involved saying he only posed as a kidnapper to extort money from Steve Nwosu. He claimed to have found a number on a Daily Sun Newspaper with which he reached Nwosu. He said his plan of conning him out of some money was ruined when he was told that the real abductors had contacted the family. He said he was in school when some policemen arrested him.
The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, has said that investigations are on-going to ensure that others involved in the crime are arrested.
