According to the suspect, he resulted in self-help after several efforts to recover his money from the victim failed. According to him, the victim has the money but has refused to pay him back.

The arrest of the suspect was made possible following a complaint lodged at the station by victim’s wife, Angela Reuben who reported that her husband was deprived of his liberty by the suspect who held him hostage.
