A Ugandan woman has found herself in hot water after allegedly faking her own kidnapping, local newspaper The Daily Monitor reports.
According to the outlet, Christine Nabasumba’s family received calls saying she had been kidnapped on her way home from work on Friday.
The kidnappers, it was claimed, wanted 10m Ugandan shillings ($2,675; £2,000) in exchange for her safe return.
However, on Monday morning police in the capital Kampala had some surprising news for her desperate father – who had enlisted officers’ help in finding the 25-year-old.
Police spokesman Luke Oweyesigire said she had been found in a guest house just 16km (nine miles) from her home in Busega, Kampala.
He added she was now facing charges for “giving false information to the public”.
