The secretary who is now in police custody was said to have insisted that she never knew that her boss was into kidnapping.
“I used to work with a bank till I resigned because of the poor condition of work. I got a job with CMT Motors in 2015. Initially, our warehouse was in Apapa till they moved us to 235, Ago Palace Way, in Okota, in 2016.
My job was to take note of trucks that go to work, their destination and amount due for each trip. The company has eleven trucks and all the vehicles original documents in my possession.
The name of my boss is George Onwuamadike and every money is paid into Chinwuba Multi Trade Limited, or CMT.
I was paid N70,000 a month. I only knew about it on TV. I did not run away, I only traveled to visit my uncle in the village when I received a call that I should bring the documents. I was planning to come to Lagos when the police arrested me.”
