Kidnapping is a major criminal activity occurring in many states of the federal and, according to analysts, it has continued to thrive as the country faces serious economic crisis, high unemployment rate and effective leadership challenge.

Earlier in the week, the member representing Mashi/Dutsi federal constituency at the House of Representatives, who was kidnapped from his farm days ago, regained freedom after paying N10 million.

On August 1, Dr Reginald Ohiri, a lecturer in the department of Biochemistry, University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT), was abducted by unknown gunmen who reportedly forced their way into his compound through the gate.

The kidnappers thereafter established contact with the family of the victim and demanding N2 million ransom for his release.

Recently, the United States issued a travelling alert to its citizens to avoid states including Adamawa, Bauchi, Bayelsa, Borno, Delta, Edo, Gombe, Imo, Jigawa, Kaduna, Kano, Katsina, Kebbi, Kogi, Niger, Plateau, Rivers, Sokoto, Yobe and Zamfara.

It recommended only essential travel to the states warning about the rise in kidnapping and other related crimes.
