UK Jails Nigerian Kidnappers

 

Two Nigerian men who handcuffed another to a radiator for over 24 hours have been jailed for 15 and five years respectively at Cardiff Crown Court in the United Kingdom.

Sochi Ezeemo and Peter Shodeinde, both 27, collected the man from Bristol and brought him to a house in Treforest.

Ezeemo contacted the brother of the victim in Nigeria demanding money they said was owed to them. Police in the UK was contacted by the victim’s brother telling them about the demands.

When police raided the house where they believed the victim was being held prisoner, they found him injured and handcuffed to a radiator.

Shodeinde claimed that he was not part of the kidnapping and false imprisonment but the evidence presented by the CPS was able to prove that he was.

Kelly Huggins, of the CPS, said: “The victim suffered appalling treatment whilst being kept prisoner, being beaten, deprived of sleep and enduring acts of humiliation such as shaving off his hair.

“It is difficult to imagine how frightening this horrible experience
would have been for the victim.
