The Uniport undergraduate of Applied And Industrial Chemistry department, said he was angered by that accusation.
“I have been dating her for three years now and she accused me of being a Kidnapper. I asked her why must she be accusing me of such when we have been together for such a time?
“I am not a Kidnapper and some of the members of her family know me very well.
“They accused me of being a Kidnapper, how can a Kidnapper be dating somebody?”He asked rhetorically.
