Nigeria ranked 3rd among countries of kidnappers while Mexico & India top the list.

The proportion of global kidnappings from Latin America has halved since 2005, but Mexico still leads the pack, according to RiskMap 2014, a new report from Control Risks.

Asia and the Pacific had the most recorded kidnaps-for-ransom in 2013, up to 35% of global cases from 31% in 2012. Risks remain in Africa, especially in Nigeria where "the overwhelming majority of incidents taking place in the oil-producing Niger delta."

SHOCKER! Man Kidnapped Best Friend Over Jealousy In Lagos.

Kingsley Ifeanyi could not believe his ears when his bosom friend Jimoh Olalere confessed to having masterminded his kidnapping. Ifeanyi’s family was a worried lot and could not go round why anyone would have any interest in kidnapping an ‘ordinary’ man.

Their answers were answered Monday when ten suspected kidnappers were arrested by the Lagos State Police. They are said to be behind a series of kidnappings at Ibeju-Lekki and its environs.

To the amazement of everyone present, one of the ten, Jimoh Olalere confessed to have masterminded Ifeanyi’s kidnap out of jealousy.

Jimoh says a quarrel started between him and his bosom friend following the sale of two plots of land by the latter and his alleged refusal to part with some money. He said:
"I sold two plots of land to Ifeanyi at the rate of N550,000 each. At the end of the deal, he was supposed to pay me some money because he sold the land at a higher rate to the buyer.

When I accosted him, he told me to go to hell that he did not get much from the sale. But that has been the custom in my area. This resulted in a heated argument that almost led to a fight.
