WHAT IS KIDNAPPING?
Oxford dictionary (sixth edition) defines kidnapping as a process of taking somebody or away by force and illegally, especially in order to obtain money before releasing the victim. In this definition the key words are “somebody and somebody” you see whether you take somebody to something from a person’s organization even government for the purpose of money (unduly you’re Kidnapper (napper).
Kidnapping is an aggravated form of false imprisonment. It usually involves the transportation for cancellation of the people. Kidnapping resources or money from the person.
For instance, if you illegally or unduly collect money from somebody to do a particular work for him/her, you have Kidnapped resources or money from the person.
If you are an employer and the employment processes are not done properly and those that failed in the interview are picked due to Nigeria factor i.e man know man syndrome. You are an occupational napper which can metamorphose into adult napping just because you have denied him his right etc.
DIFFERENCE DEFINITIONS OF KIDNAPPER
According to Edara 2010, “Kidnapper is an individual or group of individuals or people that has a corruptible mind against his fellow man”
Going by that definition. It means that 99% of Nigerians are Kidnappers (Nappers). According to John praise Udokang 2010, Kid is a noun for a child and nap is a verb which qualifies the action or crime-Napping to have “Kidnapping” since most of the people Kidnapped in Nigeria are Adult. It should be “Adult napping” not kidnapping.
Finally, according to Inim 2010; Kidnapping or Adult napping has to do with negative state of mind i.e the mentality of the people towards issues.
It answers questions like
What is corruption?
Who are Kidnappers?
Napping in general has entered the blood of almost all Nigerians and is a gene which parents transfer to the children.
HISTORICAL BACKGROUND OF KIDNAPPING (ADULT NAPPING)
Kidnapping started the day man ate the fruit that was forbidden by God.
Gen 3:8 And they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the cool of the day and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God amongst the tress of the garden.
From the illustration given, it was “self napping” which resulted in the birth of Cain who had the gene of napping i.e the highest level of Kidnapping is murder. it is also recorded in the scripture that Joseph was seized by his brothers and later sold, so that his dream wont be actualized. The process of seizing Joseph can be classify as kidnapping as a result of hatred.
Aggravated varies by state, but can include the Kidnapping for the purpose of committing another crime such as forcing the Kidnapped person to commit robbery, Kidnapping with intent of harming the person.
Appropriately enough, Kidnapping seems to have originated among those who perpetrate this crime. We know this because Kid and napper is a compound word, or slang for a thief, coming from the verb nap or steal.
In “1678, the year which the word was first recorded; Kidnappers (slave traders) plied their trade to secure laborers for plantation in colonies such as the one in Northern America, and the Caribbean’s the term later took a broader scene that it has today. The word Kidnap was recorded late in “1682”.
In Nigeria, modern Kidnapping was first unleashed in port Harcourt on February 18, 2006 by Militants pressing home their demands has now assumed a frightening proportion in various part of the country, not even the serenity of Abuja is spared.
TYPES OF NAPPERS.
2. Adult nappers
3. Meat nappers
4. Fund nappers or pen nappers
5. File nappers
6. Bride nappers
1. FUND OR PEN NAPPERS: Those involves in the process of misappropriation of public fund; example, if 10 million is allocated to a particular project and you misappropriate the money which could have affected 150 million people as a result, give rise to other forms of napping.
2. MEAT NAPPERS: A person that takes meat from the pot without the consent of the cook is a meat napper which could metamorphose into adult napping.
3. FILE NAPPERS: are those who illegally collect money before a person’s file could be treated or open. These types of nappers are predominantly found in the civil service.
4. BRIDE NAPPERS OR BRIDE KIDNAPPERS: is also known as marriage by abduction or marriage by capture
WHO ARE NAPPERS (KIDNAPERS)
2. Group of individuals or corporation
1. INDIVIDUALS: Kidnapping (napping starts from you as an individual, your mine is corrupt, think of evil, exhibits evil, hatred, love of money, cheat etc you are a kidnapper.
Anybody that his mine is corruptible, would not be sincere in his dealings, if he is a public office holder, he would diversify the public fund into his private account.
Remember when Obasanjo came in 1999, he published the names of corrupts leaders who had looted the wealth of the country, but was he able to retrieve the loots? No because he was not sincere i.e not sure of himself, that is why I said that everything start from you.
Do you know that the western world used the funds that were stolen by our leaders to develop their countries and give us loan in return?
Have you ever asked yourself this question- why is Nigeria one of the countries in the universe with all its natural endorsement (human and resources)? Between 1999 to 2003, it is estimated that $16 billion was pumped into power sector, but we are yet to see the result. So if I may asked, where is the money? All the atrocities committed by our leaders can be classified as “future napping” as a result of all this sins, God has decided to punish us severely.
2. GROUP OF INDIVIDUALS OR ORGANIZATION
Here people come together and decide to be fraudsters by deceiving people with their corruptible ideas. E.g “forex” the people came in and defrauded many individuals. This 419 business was done in partnership with banks; people paid their money into the accounts of the fraudsters and duped the people.
Since the economic meltdown that came into the country has refuse to “melt up” or “form up” if you heard on the news that about 7 CEOs of banks in Nigeria have been accused or indicated of turning their
banks into private business which they siphon innocent customers of their hard earn money which they have entrusted in the banks.
There is a report that I read that one of the CEO has not less than 10 imported cars in his possession; at whose expense?
INTERRELATIONSHIP BETWEEN KIDNAPPING AND CORRUPTION
Corruption could be define as dishonesty or wicked behaviour of people.
KIDNAPPING: To take somebody away by force or illegally; especially in order to obtain money or to obtain personal or self satisfaction.
By the time you contrast and extract or compare the term corruption and kidnapping, you will realize that kidnapping comes as a result of corruption. The sin of the people has overflown or has come to its fullness, that is why God has decided to punish us.
Let’s remember any time that Israelites sinned, God punished them depending on the dimension of their sin, so in our case; adult kidnapping comes as a Result of deferent types of napping.
QUANTITATIVE ANALYSES OF ADULT NAPPING
An estimate of 353 people were kidnapped in 2009 compared to 512 just from January, 2010. Nigeria is in the world’s top eight kidnapping hotspot alongside Afghanistan, Somalia and Iraq etc. according to united state security group Clayton consultant.
WHY DO PEOPLE INVOLVE IN ADULT NAPPING OR NAPPING BUSINESS
Nigeria is heading toward destructive revolution but the TABLETS OF KIDNAPPING will cure the disease of destructive revolution (napping).
When you see high level of crime being exhibited by individuals, groups etc. know that it time for revolution. The citizens have to take it upon themselves to fight excesses of this evil men through Kidnapping (adult napping) which is not very good for developing economy like Nigeria.
Kidnapping in Nigeria is now a normal business; in all part of Nigeria including Federal Capital Territory (Abuja) No place is totally considered to be saved. The major heat is the Eastern part of the country i.e south East, majority of their companies have been relocated to some other localities.
Kidnapping rate is veryhigh in East because they have destroyed many lives not through war but fake drugs and Adulterated products which have resulted to the death of so many innocent Nigerians and God has decided to pay them back their own corn.
On 1st September2010, federal government declared Amnesty to Kidnappers/Adult kidnappers in states which kidnappers and militancy was rampant but he has forgotten to declare amnesty to other “nappers.
- Do Your know that:
- Nigeria has come to a stage that a husband has to Kidnap the wife so that he can win sympathy from people and collect money
- A wife has to Kidnap a child so that she can collect money from organization
- The most rampant is a child taking himself /herself to friends and later call the father to give money for his release. “Wonders shall never end”
The question now is: is/are there no other avenue (s) that you can approach a wealthy person other than this act? Adult napping”
The answer is, there are, but since moral decadence has entered into people’s blood or vein, they will always resort to Kidnapping so that the punishment from God can come to pass.
- A man was killed in the church by Kidnappers because he exchanged bullets with Kidnappers; my question is why did he go to the church with a gun instead of a bible?
From all indications, you can see that many people have deviated from God’s way due to “the Seek of power” and God will not hesitates to punish such individuals.
HUMAN SOLUTION THAT WILL LIKELY FAIL
There Are Some Human Ideals or Postulation on how Kidnapping (Adult kidnapping) can be stop. Example Sim registration, when it comes to advancement of technology it cannot stop this menace.
Do you know that, there are people that can monitor your calls, texts messages etc. in the control room of your network? So if somebody wants to track you down he can pay those men that are in the control room to monitor your in calls and out calls etc. why are you depending or believing on Sim registration.
Do you know that computer virus was introduced into the system by somebody or person; again they introduced Anti-virus to fight the vir us. What you need to know is that a rational investors thinks of his money first before any other thing. If you can give him the money he will do anything especially in the developing economy.
There are no organs that are monitory the excesses of this technology investors because people are so overwhelm by the advantages of the invention.
I believe you‘ve confused because of the above statement; the question now is, who is safe?
The answer is simple, if you shall turn your mind from negative thought and come to the Lord with thy whole heart, you will be safe.
SOLUTIONS OR WAYS FORWARD FOR KIDNAPPING,BOKO HARAM AND FULANI HERDSMEN
1. Total Repentance: it is a process where you desist from your Evil ways. It can also be define as the change from corruptible ways to positive or good ways of doing things and seeing God as the controller and owner of everything on earth.
Total repentance is like love, it can be use interchangeably because anybody that has repented will not like to do Evil to follow man.
The Bible says, if my people which are called by my name shall humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven and forgive their sins and heal their land. 2 chronicle 7:14
In total repentance, no hatred, no cheating, no napping etc.
2. PARENT: parent should rise to their God given obligation “train a child in a way he should go when he grows up, he will never depart from it; says the scripture.
You can only change a child not a man.
3. THE GOVERNMENT should create awareness and reward to those who gives information for the arrest of the hoodlums because this would be a motivational factor to make people to deeply involved in the activities or happening in their vicinity.
You see,Kidnappers are not operating in the sphere but here on earth, so far kidnapping to be stopped all hand must be on desk so that the environment can safe for you and i.
3. POLITICAL CLASS: the people that are seeking political offices should be monitored, no matter who is involved because they contribute greatly to political thuggery which metamorphose into Kidnapping for example, what happened in Rivers during 1999 general election, the youth were sponsored by the political Lords to be thugs; after the election the political Lords abandoned them with the weapons in their hands. What was the outcome” Militancy and adult napping was the result; because what you stated, you must stand and finish it.
God bless every reader of this book in Jesus name Amen.
