  1. A particular state in Nigeria(I can’t recall it now) sometime ago passed a bill into law stipulating death penalty for only kidnappers whose victims had died in their detention. I hope they now see their mistake. Death penalty should be evenly spread across all kidnap cases irrespective of whether or not they killed their victims, for in this case, technically speaking, these kidnappers did not kill that man.

  2. WHO DID THIS MAN OFFEND TO DESERVE TREATMENT ?WHY DID D KIDNAPPERS TORTURE HIM WHEN THEY KNOW HE,LL PAY D RANSOME ?THOSE WHO DID THIS SHALL NEVER KNOW PEACE IN THEIR ENTIRE LIFE. BLESSED ARE D MOURNERS FOR THEY SHALL BE COMFORTED !.

  3. What a wicked world…
    Dis kidnapper’s will never have rest of mind nor experience peace 4 d rest of there life..
    What a sad story!

  4. Some stories sure has a way of darkning my day. Its possible some evil envious people might be using kidnappers to deal with their perceived enemies who are way ahead of them in achievements.
    Anything is possible in Nigeria.
    My thought though.

    I take a stroll…

  5. I think the Nigerian senate have passed a bill prescribing the death penalty for kidnappers and ritualists. When will this take effect? please make it retroactive.

  6. Only God will deliver Nigeria from the hands of Kidnappers. There is a proverb in Yoruba land that says if the ground does not open its mouth the lizard does not finds its way. The Nigeria government has promoted corruption, but don’t want people to steal as if they provided avenues for quality employment. The people have no hope and therefore frustrated. The question to ask is that, has GMB jailed anyone so far? does he show any sign of tribe impartiality? I leave you guys with the answers.
