BUSTED! Delta Poly student bags 14 years jail for kidnapping female nurse

A Delta State High Court sitting in Asaba, yesterday, sentenced a 22-year old student of Delta State Polytechnic, Ogwashi-Uku, Ndudi Ogwu, to 14 years imprisonment with hard labour for kidnapping a female nurse while on her way back home.

Sentenced along with him is a businessman, one Chukwudi Ifemeni.

The convicts were found guilty on a two-count charge of conspiracy and kidnapping. The court said it was satisfied that prosecution had proved its case beyond reasonable doubt and sentenced the convicts to 10 years imprisonment each for kidnapping and four years each for conspiracy.

Ndudi Ogwu was arrested by a patrol team of the Joint Task Force, JTF, where the kidnapped victim was held captive as the one detailed to watch over her while the second accused was arrested through Ndudi’s confessional statement. They both admitted in their confessional statements to have committed the offence upon their arrest, but later denied the charge during trial.
