Police Investigation into Nollywood Actress Kidnapping Case Continues

It was in last December that Nollywood actress Nkiru Sylvanus and Rochas Okorocha, the special assistant to Governor, got abducted. The state government had to pay N8 million to get them back. However, it is now that the government thinks that it could have been the job of an insider.

Investigations have been taking place and it has been said that Director General Jerry Okosun has hands in the kidnapping. Going by the allegation, the Imo State Police Command has detained Jerry. While providing more information about the allegation levied on Jerry.

Officials said that Jerry has acted as a negotiator between kidnappers and Sylvanus’s family. Moreover, it was found that he has exchanged a number of text messages with abductors as well. And, he was the one, who has collected the ransom of N8 million from the family of Sylvanus, so that he could give the amount to the abductors.

Sources known to the matter said that they doubted on Jerry when a top government official hinted the police about the involvement of Jerry in the kidnapping saga. The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Vitalis Onugu has confirmed the detainment news of Jerry. He has also said that for now, he is not sure that whether or not he was involved in the crime.
