Violent crimes have become a major part of Nigeria, aggravating the security situation. Insurgency, militancy, armed robbery and kidnapping have become the order of the day.
Kidnapping has become rampant in the country. According to reports, Nigeria has one of the world’s highest rates of kidnap. Several Nigerians have been kidnapped for different purposes over the years.
The crime is usually targeted at wealthy people that can pay a fee in exchange for being freed; school children have been kidnapped in groups in various parts of the country.
Unemployment is one of the reasons adduced for these crimes, I urge the Federal Government to put more effort in training anti-kidnapping agents and creating more jobs so as lessen the crime in the country.
