- Student in Cebu admitted to faking her own abduction after she lost money entrusted to her by a college dean
- Authorities didn’t detain her but was asked to undergo counseling
A student in Cebu who was allegedly abducted, finally admitted that she only faked it. The Cebu authorities are mulling to file charges against the student.
The 21-year-old college student made up a story that she was abducted by foreigners and was able to escape. She was found by a Nenita Wagas in Liloan, Cebu with her wrists tied up with a cellphone charger.
However, Chief Inspector Jacinto Mandal, Carbon Police Station commander made a strong statement that no abduction or kidnapping happened. He confirmed with Sunstar Cebu that no bruises nor wounds were found in her body. The black van that was allegedly used by her abductors was registered in Metro Manila.
The student admitted to faking her own kidnapping because she lost the P4,000 money entrusted to her by a college dean. She claimed that she lost the money when she kept it inside her locker. The dean was reportedly pressuring her to produce the money, thereby causing her to flee.
The student has already apologized to the police and to her family. However, Inspector Mandal is still considereing filing charges against her to serve as a lesson to others. The authorities didn’t detain the student but she was asked to undergo counseling and psychiatric evaluation.
