She called her brother alleging that some strange people abducted her and were demanding Sh20,000 ransom to release her. The money was sent immediately through M-Pesa after which it went off.
Detectives then launched forensic trails leading them to the TRM and while observing their reactions. The boyfriend was picked by police to record a statement on the alleged abduction.
