Alleged kidnapped pregnant woman faked her story – police


The Ogun State Police Command has revealed that a pregnant woman, Rahemat Lateef, who claimed she was kidnapped while headed for delivery at the state hospital in Ijaiye, Abeokuta, faked her story.

This was disclosed by the state police spokesperson, SP Omolola Odutola, on her X account.

CrimesChroniclers had, last Thursday, Rahemat’s husband, Ogunbunmi Lateef, had reported receiving a WhatsApp message from her husband that she had been kidnapped by suspected gunmen.

Odutola, while confirming the report on her X handle, had said, “One Ogunbunmi Lateef of Oke Lantoro reported that his pregnant wife due for delivery left home for the State Hospital, Ijaiye, Abeokuta.

“He received a WhatsApp message confirming the abduction of his wife by unknown armed men.”

However, in a twist of event, Odutola said Rahemat only faked her abduction after realizing she had suffered another miscarriage.

According to the police image-maker, she faked her kidnap to evade the wrath of her husband’s expected disappointment at yet another miscarriage.

As a result, Rahemat fled to Kwara State and later returned to Abeokuta with her father who would be able to pacify her husband.

Rahemat, therefore, fabricated the kidnap story due to frustration over repeated miscarriages, Odutola affirmed.

Giving an update on the incident, Odutola said: “Rahemat Lateef, who the husband reported was abducted, was never abducted, but planned her journey to Kwara State to escape the wrath of her husband, because she has remained unlucky due to miscarriages.

“She planned the stories; she travelled to Kwara State herself; she was far from kidnap.

“She had a miscarriage, was frustrated due to repeated recurrence, and feared her husband’s reactions, so she orchestrated the script.

“The anti-kidnapping team started tracking her, till she showed up.”

Odutola further hinted that Rahemat is safe and receiving medical attention.
