Lady stages own kidnap to get Shs25m from boyfriend

She apparently came up with the idea because her boyfriend was mean with money

According to the Daily Monitor, she used the magic voice service and made teary calls to her boyfriend on different phone numbers claiming she was in the hands of abductors who would kill her if he did not send Shs25 million to secure her release.

Commitment

The man sent the “kidnappers” Shs700,000 as a commitment that he would send the balance later. He then reported the case at Lugala Police Station.

After a few days of negotiations with the alleged abductors, Old Kampala Police launched a rescue mission.They were shocked after finding Uwase living large and comfortable in a Kampala mansion.

Arrest

Upon questioning, she confessed her misdeeds arguing that she lacked money for her siblings’ upkeep.

She is detained at Old Kampala Police Station on charges of giving false information.

According to the Penal Code Act, whoever gives to any person employed in the public service information which he or she knows or believes to be false, commits a misdemeanor.
