The anti-kidnapping boss said that Bassey had borrowed about N1.2 million from the victim whose niece, Ruth Edem, 22, a 200-level student of the University of Calabar, he is dating.

A source who pleaded anonymity, said that the victim, a Lafarge staff, and the breadwinner of her family, only wanted to help the suspect by supporting him with some money to boost his palm oil business.

“My sister gave him the money in tranches and it’s about N1.2 million and it was given to him earlier this year to enable him to boost his palm oil business.

“My sister needed to return the money back to where she got it because it is not her own, but the suspect refused, instead he turned the whole thing around, claiming to have given my sister a house document to sell and my sister absconded with the proceeds of N9 million.
