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."

Use A Mobile Phone While Driving And Go To Jail - FRSC Warns.

The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) has announced a newly adopted strategy that would ensure that any person caught using the mobile phone while driving, would no longer be fined but immediately taken to court and jailed.

Corp Marshal, FRSC, Mr. Osita Chidoka said other offences like speed driving, dangerous overtaking and overloading would equally attract court action instead of the usual fines.

The FRSC boss, who was speaking at a news conference in Abuja, said these new measures are part of a newly launched campaign to reduce the increased spate of road crashes in the country.

Commercial bus drivers are now expected to install speed limit devices in their vehicles so they henceforth should not exceed 100km per hour.

National President of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) however admitted that some drivers are guilty of the aforementioned road accident causing crimes.

The FRSC says it is partnering with several organizations including oil companies to fulfill its promise to make Nigerian roads one of the safest in the world by the year 2020.

Protest In Benin City Over Okada Ban By Edo State Governor. (Photos)

The Edo State bike ridders are on rampage after gov. Adams Oshiomhole banned the use of commercial motocycle citing that it's the major means kidnappers use for kidnapping in Edo state.

What i was expecting the comrade governor to do was to ban Okada in some major streets in Benin City to reduce traffic and accident not the total ban of Okada. I say corruption & alcohol has killed more Edo people than Okada. Ban corruption not okada.

Meanwhile, gov. Oshiomhole's ban on okada has nothing to do with the reasons he gave, it has more to do with the billions of naira ha and his agents will make from a deal with the chinese to replace okada with keke Napep in urban areas of Edo State. 

Keke Napep cannot employ 5% of okada riders that will be affected by this fraud. Or where the Okada men the people that committed the electoral genocide in April 2013? Below is a list of people that were kidnapped in Edo State and none of them were kidnapped by okada riders.
