Katwe Police, Uganda arrested a woman for allegedly kidnapping herself with intent to extort money from the unsuspecting husband.
Miriam Kusuubira a wife to Pastor Shadrach Kusuubira of Noah’s Arch Church in Kikajjo-Masajja called in alarming that she had been kidnapped and that her captors demanded KSh 1.3 millions (approximately UGX 50 million).
According to Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson Luke Owoyesigyire, Miriam faked her kidnapping and gave false information to the police and the general public officers and led to a wastage of government resources.
She claimed she was allegedly picked up by strangers on June 6, 2018 as she was on her way to buy a piece of land.
The detectives quickly swung into action with hopes of rescuing her from the hands of the captors only to be found at her daughter’s house where she was hiding.
The suspect was arrested and is currently detained at Katwe Police Station.
This refutes the earlier reports by some media houses about Miriam Kusuubira being kidnapped killed and body parts cut off.
