    kidnapping! now one of the most commercial business in Nigeria. some Nigerians has seen this as the easiest way to make money. i think the police should do something about security of the school. i also smell that some students could be involved in this act. I pray that you come back to your family alive and in good health

    Kidnappings has now become a well paying and lucrative business primarily because of the high rate of unemployment in the country. Secondly,because of greed and lack of contentment. The desire for materialism and unemployment have driven many into unthinkable level of violence and lawlessness in the society which is now alarming. Unless something is done to fix and revive our crippling economy,we may continue to witness the proliferation of kidnappings in the country in a scale never seen before.

    “Wrong target” released for another target. Very frightening. It does not sound like kidnapping for ransom but for other reasons. Let’s hope the current victim is also the “wrong target” for the alternative possibility the victim is kidnapped to settle scores, whether Imagined or real is very unsettling to contemplate.. Wish him safe return to his family.

    Let the police officers do pursue the kidnappers wisely before they will kill the lecturer. God please mercy on the lecturer.
