Security Operatives attached to the Denton Police Station have arrested a young creditor identified as Oluchi Okoye aka PACA for tying his debtor, Reuben Alozie, to a stake over unpaid N4.6m debt.
The suspect tied the victim to a stick with ropes at No. 29, Abeokuta Street, Ebute Metta, Lagos from 22nd September to 23rd September when he was eventually released by the police.
According to the suspect, he resulted in self-help after several efforts to recover his money from the victim failed.
The arrest of the suspect was made probable following a complaint lodged at the station by the victim’s wife, Angela Reuben who informed that her husband was stripped of his liberty by the suspect who held him hostage.
The Commissioner of Police, CP Hakeem Odumosu has directed that the suspect should be transferred to the Command’s Tactical team for diligent investigation and prosecution.
Confirming the incident, the spokesperson of the state police command, CSP Adekunle Ajisebutu, said the state Commissioner of Police has warned people against taking the law into their own hands instead of taking legal actions to seek justice.
