The Police Command in Delta state has apprehended one Solomon Odjivwuderhie, who allegedly arranged the disappearance of his daughter, Stephanie, in a ploy to pay off a huge debt by his wife.
BIGPENNGR reports that the Delta Commissioner of Police, Ari Muhammed Ali disclosed this in Asaba on Wednesday while parading suspects arrested for various crimes by the Police Command.
According to Ali, the suspect confessed to masterminding the disappearance of his daughter upon interrogation after his arrest.
He said that on July 20, a case of the missing 21-year old Stephanie was reported at ‘B’ Division, Warri, prompting the Command to issue a press statement to the effect.
“Members of the public who saw the publication on various online media and newspapers informed the police that she was seen around Okpaka in Udu. The police moved to the area and arrested a friend of the girl. The suspect confessed that the father of the girl, Mr Solomon Odjivwuderhie asked to please allow the girl to stay with them for some time.
“The girl’s father was immediately arrested, and he confessed that he masterminded the girl’s disappearance because the mother of the girl is owing to the girl’s boss a huge amount of money close to N50 million. They believe that with the disappearance of the girl, her boss won’t have the guts to demand his money,’ Ali said.
