‘Kidnapped’ AAU Student Exposed For Allegedly Faking Her Kidnap For N100m

Nigerians have taken to Twitter to drag one Miss Adebayo Oyiza, the 18-year-old student of Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma, who was allegedly kidnapped last week.

CAMPUS GIST recalls how the alleged kidnapping of Oyiza made headlines, with her abductors said to be demanding N100 million ransom.

According to reports, Oyiza, a 200 level medical student of AAU was kidnapped on transit near Kogi state by suspected Fulani herdsmen.

A voice note said to be the conversation between her abductors and lover in Hausa made the rounds where Oyiza could be heard in a weak, broken voice supposedly traumatized.

Four days after what seemed like a staged kidnap, Oyiza reportedly escaped the claws of her kidnappers claiming she “trekked” all the way from Kogi to Edo.

Shortly after her ‘dramatic’ escape, Oyiza took to Facebook to make an announcement that apparently didn’t go well with people who have been worked up over her alleged kidnap.

She simply wrote: “Wagwan”, on her wall, a Bini language CAMPUS GIST understands is translated into “What’s going on” in English language.

The statement raised eyebrows as many said anyone who just left captivity would be too traumatized to post on social media immediately after her release.

In another post, agent ‘Flash’ Oyiza debunked her kidnapping rumours, saying she has been sick and never sent any distress message to anyone.

“I can’t write essay I no fit till further notice. I’m very unwell. Cruise? So did I come online to post I was kidnapped or I called one person to please reach out and help me that I got kidnapped?,” she wrote.

Oyiza went ahead to tackle all claims that she staged her kidnap saying she has been in school and her parents are aware of her whereabouts.

“I had an health issue and I was going to fix and I got napped’ on the road, if you stay in Okene or know anyone there, stroll go parks or police station and ask them what happened I haven’t been in Lagos since protest started.

“I’ve been in school and my parents are aware of that, I didn’t run from home, didn’t plan anything.

“The TV noise in the recording, release it let’s hear.
“Let me type this one in peace.
“Then you can now do as you like.
“Wagwan was wrong!

“Me trying to create threads but people kept dragging and my evil spirit is controlling me.

“You need to understand that I can’t type the long essay on a go, it’s bits by bits.

“First off
I’m sorry, I don’t know how to behave.

“Secondly
I’m sorry if I made you loose anything or make people come at you.

“Thirdly
I’m beyond grateful for help and prayers.
So grateful!

“No money is with me, the voice note going around, God bless the person for adding fuel to fire, people bringing old conversations and remixing storyline, special shout out, people claiming what they’re not to me and putting me in more trouble, hugs and kisses.

“If I wanted to chase clout, I for post or I for call many people, I only called three people on the first day, and I started receiving many calls checking on me and I know someone I called put out the nappers’ number which was a good thing, to an extent, the people that kept asking for me where much and made the nappers’ think I had lots of people to gimme so why not bill her.”

CAMPUS GIST, however, observed that Oyiza’s statements did not go down well with her friends, as many insisted she was chasing clouts.

Some have joined the call for Oyiza to be arrested and prosecuted to serve as deterrent to others who may want to pull similar kidnapping drama.

A social media user alleged that Oyiza intended to use the N100 million to travel to the United Kingdom with her lover assuming she succeeded.

A Facebook user, identified as Boda GigGle narrated how he noticed something “fishy” when he reached out to the family of Oyiza.

The user in a bid to use his platform to help out, contacted Oyiza’s alleged brother who referred him to her ‘dad’ and the story took a different turn from there.

Campus Gist reliably gathered that the university don died of the coronavirus disease complications on Tuesday, June 30.

He was said to have been admitted at the isolation centre unit of Irrua Specialist Hospital in Edo some days ago, before his demise.

A source at the hospital where he was treated, said the lecturer could not survive the disease owing to underlying medical conditions, including difficulty in breathing.

The source, was, however silent on the said medical conditions.
But a university source, who confirmed the development, said the lecturer was always falling sick.

“Yes, it’s true (that the lecturer is dead). He had some disease alongside COVID-19 hence he couldn’t have survived owing to his advanced age too,” the source said.

Until his death, Professor Ukun was a lecturer in the department of Philosophy, faculty of Arts. He was also a former Dean of the faculty.

The University management was yet to issue any formal statement as at the time of filing this report. Spokesman for the institution could not be reached for comment.
