Remember Mrs Ruth Uche, the woman who was abandoned by her husband after she had three sets of twins? a woman borrowed her last set with an ulterior motive of defrauding a retired police commissioner but she got arrested by officials of the Lagos State Police Command.
The incident happened on Sunday, September 27, 2015 in the Agege area of Lagos State.
Mrs Uche who was re-united with her husband, Emeka, following the intervention of the Lagos State Government, was approached by the suspect, identified simply as Victoria, a mother of two, who claimed she wanted to feature the babies in a movie.
Upon her husband’s insistence, the woman followed the suspect to the location of the purported film which turned out to be the ex-commissioner’s house.
Punch reports that Victoria had been engaged in an illicit relationship with the unnamed retired CP and had taken photos of the kids, which she sent to him as the products of their relationship.
The Police Public Relations Officer, Lagos State Command, Joe Offor, who confirmed the incident, disclosed that on reaching the house, the unsuspecting mother of the twins, and the suspect began to argue over the ownership of the babies, which raised the suspicion of the former police boss.
“What happened was that the woman told the Uche family that she wanted to use the twins in a film, and they believed her.
“But Ruth’s husband insisted that she accompanied Victoria. When they got to the man’s house, Victoria told him that the twins were the products of their illicit relationship; she was expecting the man to reward her.
“But the mother of the twins insisted that they were her kids. When the man saw the way they were arguing, he called policemen from the Agege Pen Cinema Division, and they were both arrested,” said the police spokesperson.
The suspect later confessed that she deceived the parents of the twins with the story of featuring them in a film because she wanted to extort some some money from the retired police commissioner.
