Lebanese man arrested for kidnapping in Lagos

A 23 year old Lebanese man has been arrested by police in Lagos for kidnapping his 61 year old aunt, Alhaja Essa Dannawi. Mohammed Dannawi (pictured above) conspired with a former employee of his aunt, Obi Kwentua, (pictured above) to kidnap the woman on May 2nd at her home in Ebute Meta, Lagos.

Mohammed, who later confessed to the crime, told police during interrogation that he didn't kidnap his aunt because of money but to punish her because she offended him and his wife. He said:
“My aunty did something very bad to my wife and I and so I decided to punish her. I met with Obi (Kwentua) and told him that I wanted my aunty kidnapped. I gave him the spare key to her house and he in turn hired some boys to do the work. On the day of the operation, I left the house and five guys stormed the place and took my aunty away. The plan was not to demand money from her, it was just punishment.”
Punish your own relation by kidnapping her? Wow! Continue reading...


After the kidnapping, the kidnappers demanded N100m ransom from the woman's family but later agreed to collect N4m. It was during negotiations with the kidnappers that Mohammed confessed to being behind the kidnap and with his co-operation the police were able to arrest one of the suspects, Obi Kwentua when he came to collect the N4million ransom from relatives of the victim at Rita Lori Hotel in Surulere.

Essa Dannawi was later released while Mohammed and Kwentua were arrested.

What a FOOL! Stupid fool.I mean the ibo boy. So he thought he could make fast cash by breaching an agreement you had his client? The motif was to just get the aunt sober, that's all. So how did he think the story was gonna end. I recommend movies like criminal minds and hawaii 5-O such ppl. Bloody amateur! LOL

Linda, I promised myself not to comment on posts since most times I can't find mine....well for the sake of this story I just had to.......I live in Ebute-metta and Obi is someone I know well, his senoir brothers are responsible hardworking men living abroad, but the problem is most young guys in Ebute-metta are so lazy and greedy. They don't like to strugle...thought there are few that are hardworking....the story is not new to us in the areas cos, they arrested lots of these stupid guys in the area....the Lebanese guy is not innocent at all like people are speculating, he was the master mind behind these, he was able to pull it through of the laziness and greed of the likes of Obi and co....I feel for his family espcially his Dad and Brothers....its a big lesson for the other guys, I hope they all learn from these and stop their new craze for quick money....Busslady signing out...I hope Linda post this.

Please note, in Ebute-metta, we dont discriminate, Obi is of Igbo Origin but he is one of us, everybody despite there tribe relate well with eachother. No segregation or discrimination....therefore, shame to you all that are are tagging and referring to the Igbo tribe...enough of these shit already....Busslady.
