KIDNAPPING: Man Accuses Father-in-law of Kidnapping His Children
A retired naval Captain, Diamond Onoberhie, has accused his father-in-law, Rear Admiral John Kpokpogri, of kidnapping his four children and relocating them to Canada, where they live with their mother, Ms Rena Kpokpogri. The four children are Demien, Erhuvwu, Whitney (17) and Dominic Onoberhie (12).
According to him, Kpokpogri took all the major and conflicting decisions to truncate his marriage to his daughter in line with his alleged promise to render him useless. He said, all these happened because I disagreed with his family about leading my life the way I was brought up in the Christian way. They wanted us to live fake lives. Often times, my mother-in-law was on my neck to live my life like her husband’s. Each time she said this, I always objected to it, asking her to allow me lead my own life.
The retired naval captain said Dibia, a lawyer, was instructed by Rena to abduct Dominic, while Abel was a gateman in Diamond’s residence. The suspects, who were arraigned on three counts bordering on conspiracy to kidnap, total disregard for court order and unlawful possession of Dominic, pleaded not guilty to the charges preferred against them.
