Cops searching for six over kidnapping, torture

Police on Sunday arrested a Cambodian woman and are searching for her six Nigerian accomplices in connection with the kidnapping and torture of a Nigerian man in the capital’s Sen Sok district.

District police chief Hour Mengvang said Iroegbu Vche Andrew, 46, sustained injuries to his back and cheek after he was confined and tortured with an iron on Saturday.

The victim managed to escape while two of the suspects were smoking and left him unattended at the house. “The Cambodian woman was the victim’s girlfriend.

She invited him to the house and let the other Nigerians confine him for ransom. They tortured him and demanded $5,000 in return for his release. We’re still investigating,” he said.
