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.

Governor Oshiomhole Bans Commercial Motocycle In Three LGA In Benin City.

Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State has banned the use of commercial motocycle popularly known as Okada in Benin City with effect from next Monday. 

The governor announced the ban to newsmen this morning after this week's security meeting, stating that the ban is limited to three local government areas which are Ikpoba Okha, Oredo and Egor Local Government Area. He added that it is now increasingly evident that many of the kidnappers in the state are Okada riders and that the state has become a haven for criminals and other okada riders who migrated to Edo State following similar bans in other states.

He appealed to the Okada riders to bear with the government as they were compelled to make this decision. 

He also said that the security agencies have resolved to commerce random checks of the private security personnel employed by residents in the state to determine if they are Nigerians and have valid papers to reside in the country as it has been discovered that they have largely been the informants in cases of kidnapping.
He advised residents of the state to properly scrutinize those they employ as helps and security personnel.

#Na wa oh! Okada ban when there is no single industry or establishment in the state to employ  the unemployed. My heart bleeds for the thousands of bread winners and their families whose livelihood has just ended. I think this is a way of turning the state into a haven of criminal activities.
Is this a way of reducing crime or increasing it?
