A 26-year-old woman, Atagher Queen, who allegedly faked her kidnap, on Thursday, appeared in a Magistrates’ Court in Ebute Meta, Lagos.

The police charged Queen with three counts of fake kidnap and extortion.

Earlier, the Prosecution counsel, Inspector Chinalu Uwadione, told the court that the defendant committed the offence on January 10, about 2.30 p.m. at Lekki Phase II.

He said that Queen faked her own kidnap and demanded N10 million, from her boss, Mr Oluwafemi, for her release before her plans were foiled.

The offence, he said, contravened the provisions of sections 2, 3 and 5 of the Kidnapping Prohibition Laws of Lagos State 2017.

She, however, pleaded not guilty.

Chief Magistrate Adeola Adedayo admitted the defendant to bail in the sum of N300,000 with two sureties each in like sum.

Adebayo adjourned the case until February 3, for mention.
