“She said she did it since her mother had insisted that she goes through the medical field as against her dream of becoming an actress,’’ Abutu said.

Abutu said one Bolaji Femi of Bawa Estate, Ado-Ekiti, reported to the police on Tuesday that her sister who left home for school at Christ’s School, Ado-Ekiti, on Monday did not return home.

The “unknown person’’ said the supposed victim would not be released until a ransom of N500,000 was paid to a particular bank account.

Abutu said the police tracked the owner of the bank account and he was arrested.

He said the account owner, who is also a friend to the girl’s boyfriend, led operatives to a hotel in Ado-Ekiti, where the supposed victim, her boyfriend and one other accomplice were apprehended.
