George Nnamdi, a 200-level political science undergraduate at Abia State University, has been arrested for faking his kidnapping.
Nnamdi allegedly texted one of his friends at 3 a.m. on Thursday, May 13, saying that he and three other students had been abducted by six men armed with AK-47 rifles. He said, however, that he was joking with his mate.
A 300-level Mass Communication student and friend of the suspect, Faith Godson said she alerted the University security after she received the text message, leading to the arrest of Nnamdi who was hiding in his lodge that is off the University campus.
Chief Security Officer of ABSU, ThankGod Evulobi who confirmed the incident disclosed that they received a distress call that a student has been kidnapped and swung into action only to discover that George Nnamdi faked his own kidnap.
Evulobi said appropriate action will be taken against the supposed victim in line with the rules and regulations guiding University.
