The NSCDC Commandant in Ekiti State, Mr John Fayemi, said the suspect wrote a letter with a fictitious identity to his boss in Ado Ekiti in December, threatening to kidnap him if he failed to deposit N1.5m into a bank account.
Fayemi, who spoke while parading Olayinka alongside two other suspects arrested by the command for different crimes in the New Year, said the 21-year-old was arrested by men of the counter-terrorism squad for threatening to kidnap his employer.
He said, “Upon discreet investigation, the suspect was arrested on January 8, 2022.
The suspect was a sales boy of the victim, but he cooked up a letter using a strange name and account number and demanded a sum of N1.5m or else his employer would be kidnapped.
 “But for the quick response of my men, he was botched after a discreet operation. He used a fictitious name, account and telephone number with the intention to defraud his employer.
We tracked the phone number and he was arrested. He would be charged to court on completion of ongoing investigation.”
Olayinka, an indigene of Osun State, said what he did was only an attempt to raise money for Christmas from his boss.
