Kyliuk Morris, Canadian Kidnapped In Ogun State Nigeria Narrates How Policeman From Abuja Delivered N2.5M Ransom To His Kidnappers

A Canadian farmer who was kidnapped last month while heading to Ibadan from his base in Ogun state has narrated his hellish ordeal in the den of his kidnappers.

52-year-old Kyliuk Morris, who married a Nigerian woman, Justina Kyliuk in 2014 exposed some a policeman from Abuja who delivered a N2.5million ransom to his kidnappers before he regained his freedom.

In a chat with Punch NG in Abeokuta, MOrris said he was kidnapped at Fidiwo in Obafemi Owode LGA of Ogun State on the 13th of March.

The Canadian noted that he spent six days in the kidnappers’ den, adding that he was forced to eat eba and drink dirty water.

Morris explained that he was travelling with his wife to fix his car when the two gunmen shot at his car, which made him to drive into a ditch.

He noted that when his wife tried to escape to get help, the kidnappers shot at her, while he was led to a bush.

“I spent six days in the den of the kidnappers. They beat me up, while my wife ran around to raise the ransom they demanded,” he added.

The victim said he was forced to call his sister in Canada who provided the ransom before he regained his freedom.

He said, “A policeman, who collected the ransom, paid the kidnappers to get me released from my abductors.”

He stated that he decided to stay in Abeokuta to set up a farming business before the incident occurred.

When asked about how he paid the ransom, Morris said, “A policeman assigned from Abuja gave my wife a telephone number to call an officer from the Special Anti-Robbery Squad in Ogun State.

“Aside from the ransom, they (police) asked my wife to give them N20,000 as transportation fare. They said they risked their lives to get me out.

“I want the government to be aware of what happened to me. The Nigerian government has been pushing for foreign investors to come, especially for agriculture and yet, there is no security; absolute zero security.

“I am not calling for a special treatment because I am a Canadian. I want people to be aware of what is happening. I just did through personal experience.

“If they (the police) have a job to do, they should do it. I think government at all levels should hold the police responsible for what they are hired for.

“If someone is kidnapped, the police should do their job. My wife went to see them, but they made no effort. My wife told them the exact place where I was; nothing was done. They dragged their feet.”

    • you will be excited when u pass through torture bah?do u kn what it means to stay in kidnappers den for even a day not to talk of almost one week.instead of applauding the man for exposing those criminals in police force in anti robbery dept..even surprised why their names were not released.police needs reformation ,they harrass and intimdate people at ease.shebi una talk say canada is begging buhari to send many people which they later debunked as fake news..we have serious security issues ..u cant even rule out most kidnap cases and bank heist.80 percent of crime have inside collaborators.period

    • @Chioma you talked like a proper Nigerian. Why would police collect money from a vulnerable citizen???
      It’s a shame.
      Policeman did his job.
      You need to go out of Nigeria, and see real security personnel at work, not naija police with their pepper soup pot-bellies.

  1. This one that the police delivered the ransom by their own have, ( i hope monkey hand no go resemble human hand for this matter )

  2. Wait until they kidnap you or any of your relatives then you’ll understand what he meant! How could they’ve paid the ransom without arresting the kidnappers if there’s nothing fishing?

  3. You guys must be high on drugs to write these garbage. What exactly is the work of police? @Chioma Beauty and @Omoshalewa, have you ever left the shores of Nigeria and witnessed how other countries police protect their citizens and ensure crimes dont go unpunished? This generation is so wasted and nothing can salvage it!
    Looting, kidnapping, robbery, scamming has become so legal such that a poor job done by the police should be applauded? This is so sad!

  4. Police delivered ransom 2 free victim frm kidnappers’ den; KINDNAPPERS @ LARGE popping champaign????????????

  5. We have almost lost it in every angle, now, this is the type of story and incident that gives Nigeria bad image, when people who are paid to help maintain law and order are the ones breaking it…..this is not exposing them to Nigerians but to the whole World because Nigerians already knew who they (police) are, at least majority of them.

  6. Folks don’t be surprised about this incidence because the Nigerian Police works side by side with the kidnappers.

    Now tell me the essence of having law enforcers in Nigeria. A police officer collected ransom from the victim to bribe his adopters in order to gain his freedom. Is this for real? Sentiment aside, how do you think other people reading this story around the world will feel? I don’t have any iota of doubt that this set up is a well organized crime planned between the law enforcement agents and the kidnappers.

    There are some incidences in the past where our law enforcement agency had used this kind of money as a bait to trace the location of kidnappers but this time around the Police is a direct negotiator between the criminal gangs and the victim. I’m still trying to figure out how this could have happened in my Country. I don’t think there is any more hope left in this Country. May lord have mercy on the less privileged.

  7. The police men are working together with the kidnappers, the will go back for their own share of the money. Corrupt men. Thank God, we still have some good policemen.
