Ekiti State Chief Magistrates’ Court in Ado Ekiti, on Monday, sentenced a 20-year-old lady, Mary Idris, and her accomplice, Victor Olawusi, to two weeks of community service, for planning her kidnap.

The court also ordered that the convicts should undergo two weeks counseling.

Idris had travelled from Ado Ekiti to Akure, the Ondo State capital, on August 9, 2020, and connived with Olawusi to send a message to her parents that she had been kidnapped.

She also conspired with the accomplice to tell her parents that her abductors have demanded ransom.

Police prosecutor, Monica Ikebulo, said the convicts “did conduct themselves in a manner likely to cause a breach of the peace by concealing their whereabouts and demanding ransom from Mary’s parents on the pretext that she had been kidnapped.”

The lady confessed that she went to her boyfriend’s house in Akure to relax, and ran out of money for transportation back to Ado Ekiti, which made her send false message to her parents.

The Chief Magistrate, Adefunke Anoma, in her ruling, said:

“This again is sadly a sign of high moral decadence in the fabric our society.”

“The two (community service and counselling) are to run simultaneously and the convicts are to report back to the court at the expiration of the said two weeks.”

Anoma also said the chief security officer of the state Judiciary and the court registrar will supervise the community service.
