JERRY OKOSUN, son of the late Ozidi King, Sunny Okosun has been set free by the Nigeria Police Force (NPF). He was arrested in December for his alleged involvement in the kidnap of the Nollywood actress and Special Assistant to the Imo State Government on Public Affairs, Miss. Nkiru Sylvanus.
He was set free in Owerri along with other suspects after he was found not guilty of the offence. He was arrested on Christmas day; December 25, 2012 after Jerry allegedly insisted that the Imo state Government should pay N15million ransom to facilitate quick release of the actress.
We gathered that suspicious text messages were found on his phone in connection with the crime. Nkiru was kidnapped along with former Mr Nigeria, Kenneth Okolie on the 16th of December in Owerri Imo state. Her family eventually paid kidnappers N8 million to secure her release.
