Delilah Tactics: How Woman lured Lawmaker to Kidnappers

An IT man, Cyril Isong, has been apprehended by the police for allegedly being involved in the abduction of a House of Representative member.

He's a graduate of Information Technology at the University of Minna, Niger State. 

Isong, who lived in Abuja, reportedly connived with others, at large to lure the lawmaker to a short let apartment in Asokoro, Abuja, with a woman and held him hostage, afterwards, dispossessing him of $2,000 and N65,000.

Akwa Ibom police authorities apprehended Isong following a petition the lawmaker addressed to the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba.

The victim alleged in the petition that on August 4, 2020, he received a call from an unknown caller who introduced himself as Sani and claimed to be a former National Assembly member.

Sani reportedly claimed that he was having health challenges and was advised to contact the lawmaker who was in charge of the affairs of former members of the House.

The rep alleged that he directed Sani to his House in Abuja, but the caller gave an excuse that he had been rendered immobile by the illness, and appealed to the lawmaker to come to his apartment in Asokoro.

On getting to the short let facility, the victim reportedly met two men who introduced themselves as Sani’s brothers. He was said to have been attacked immediately; he was ushered in, blindfolded and tied up.

He stated that they lured the unsuspecting lawmaker into an apartment in Asokoro, held him hostage and dispossessed him of his cash and other valuables.

He stated, “They were the ones who arranged one beautiful lady who spoke to him through a video call. 

"The apartment is a short let in an estate in Asokoro, and it’s N80,000 per night. On the agreed date, the honourable came; we grabbed him and tied him up. I did not speak throughout because he might recognise my voice."
