Prof. Iweala's Ransom Negotiations Now at 200m Naira
Isn't absurd how kidnapping seem to be a part of our society that we have come to slowly accept? I am still in shock that we talk about it without breaking a sweat! My cousin was kidnapped in Benin, and barely a year later his wife was kidnapped, just because they are comfortable. He is not a politician, or some money laundering government official, just a successful medical doctor.
I was reading in the Vanguard about the negotiation from 1b Naira to 200m Naira for the release of Dr. Ngozi Okonjo Iweala's mum, and it just makes my blood boil.
How can someone just sit down and ask for ONE BILLION NAIRA that they did not work for?
I really hope some of these high falluting kidnappers are exposed, and if they have some godfather behind them, let them dance to the beat of their own drums.
