Michael Alozie, who claimed the student was his girlfriend, was arrested
in a hideout at Chokoneze, Mbaise, in Imo State by a team of soldiers,

teenage girl hostage in his place.
It was said that he had earlier threatened the girl’s parents through
repeated calls and text messages, demanding a ransom of N1.5million.

marry the student and blamed his friend, now at large, for sending

their daughter agreed to her own kidnap and got pregnant for the

was also arrested.
A medical report made available to Southern City News revealed that the
teenage girl was confirmed to be five months pregnant for her boyfriend.
