Kidnapping: Overview, Causes, Effects, and Solutions

Mike Uzochukwu writes on many topics, including metallurgy, business, insurance, and the challenges faced by today's youth.

A Global Problem

Kidnapping is a global problem that affects countries all over the world—from the United States and Mexico to many countries in Africa, Asia, and beyond. Governments are working hard to address this problem and ensure that the perpetrators are captured and brought to justice.

Kidnapping refers to the abduction and captivity of a person, typically to obtain a ransom. Sometimes kidnappers hold their captives longer in order to demand more money from the victim's relatives or associates. It is a wicked act.

No matter the level of difficulty anyone is facing, that is not enough reason to choose kidnapping as an option to survive. There are many causes of kidnapping, including unemployment, poverty, religion, political issues, and so on. The practice can be reduced with governmental involvement.

Kidnapping in Nigeria

Kidnapping is not a new problem in Nigeria, and it is one of the country's biggest challenges. The country faces many problems, including unemployment, corruption, and low rates of education—but it is kidnapping, thanks to high-profile incidents perpetrated by the Islamic militant group known as Boko Haram, that has drawn the world's attention. The facts show that the rate of kidnapping in this country is indeed high.

International organizations are joining Nigerian groups to combat this problem. Chad, Cameroon, and the United States have recently joined in the fight.

Boko Haram's kidnappings are motivated by both politics and religion, according to their own leaders as well as the Nigerian government.

The kidnappings are political because corrupt politicians want to destroy the government of the former President Goodluck Jonathan. The kidnappings are also religious because of the group's fundamentalist Islamic beliefs. The meaning of their name is “Western education is prohibited,” which explains why they continue to target schoolchildren. On the night of April 14, 2014, about 276 Chibok schoolgirls, ages 16 to 18, were kidnapped by this group.

A popular Christian musician in Nigeria, Chika Okpala, lamented the kidnapping of a friend in a song entitled “Ndi Nto” (meaning "the kidnappers"). He stated that when the perpetrators were asked why they did it, they said they needed money. They went on to explain that they did not have jobs due to high unemployment.

Sometimes, ordinary citizens participate in kidnappings in order to line their pockets, usually youths who are hired by rich men to do their dirty business. The criminals will target rich families and sometimes demand up to twenty million naira (the equivalent of about $119,000).

The government of the Nigerian state of Anambra issued a new law that changed the punishment for anyone caught kidnapping. The former governor of this state, Peter Obi, declared that offenders would be sentenced to death—and that anything purchased with ransom money, like a house or car, would be destroyed.

Kidnapping Worldwide

The rates of kidnapping in Europe, North America, and South America are attracting worldwide attention. The practice of kidnapping has become quite lucrative for some, and there are criminal groups that have made it their business model.

In Mexico, with its history of drug-related violence and police corruption, kidnapping is an old story. According to the U.S. Department of State, Mexico suffered an estimated 105,682 kidnappings in 2012, and in 2013 the number reached 131,946, the highest number on record.

The disappearance of children in the United States is not unheard of, either, and it is a problem that police and other agencies are working hard to address. According to the National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children, roughly 800,000 children are reported missing each year in this country.

In some cases, the kidnapping seems to make very little sense. One example is an incident that took place in the United Kingdom in which a woman kidnapped her own daughter. According to The Sun, "Karen Matthews was jailed for eight years for her part in faking the kidnap of her own daughter in 2008. The mum-of-seven, who has been dubbed Britain’s Most Hated Mum, was released from prison after serving half of her sentence."

The question we might ask is why would a mother kidnap her own daughter? What could possibly inspire her to do such a terrible thing?

The answer is that she did it for the money. She did it so that she could claim the £50,000 reward offered by the government for "finding" Shannon. She planned to share the reward money with her accomplice, Michael Donovan, who was a relative.

According to the Offender Management Caseload Statistics, the UK recorded about 57 convicted kidnappings cases between 2007-2008.

In some countries, kidnapping has also affected who occupies top government positions. The son of the former president of Slovakia was once kidnapped. In August of 1995, Michal Kovac Jr, whose father was president of newly independent Slovakia, was stopped in his car by armed men who handcuffed him, forced him to drink two bottles of whisky, and then drove him to an unknown destination (The Economist, 2017).

It is sometimes said that corruption can lead to kidnapping. Somalia, which is one of the most corrupt countries in the world, unfortunately has quite a bit of experience with this problem. On May 3, 2018, a German nurse named Sonja Nientiet was kidnapped there. According to a BBC News report, "A German nurse with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has been kidnapped in Somalia's capital Mogadishu, the aid group says."

Causes of Kidnapping

There are many causes of kidnapping around the globe, including:

  • Unemployment
  • Poverty
  • Illiteracy
  • Religion
  • Greed
  • Politics
  • Corruption

Below, we'll examine each cause individually.

Unemployment

The high unemployment rate in many countries has forced citizens to find other ways to make money—and some of those ways are illegal. Kidnapping a rich person can be a lucrative business. A cash-strapped unemployed person may believe that when he kidnaps someone who is rich, he may be able to become rich himself.

Poverty

Any person who lives below $1.25 a day is living below the poverty line. Poverty can propel people toward crime as a way to make ends meet. Sometimes, a person who is poor might believe that kidnapping or other illegal acts could provide the necessary money to start a new life—a life that will no longer involve crime.

Illiteracy

Illiteracy is the inability to read or write. When people know how to read and write, they can gain the skills they need in order to become educated, get a job, and live a productive life. Literacy and education can also be an important foundation upon which to build a deeper understanding of moral judgment and decision making.

The kidnappings and bombings perpetrated by Boko Haram, the militant Islamic group in Nigeria, are caused by illiteracy, at least in part. The leaders of this group feed their men false information, which the men cannot disprove by reading outside sources. Boko Haram fighters engage in suicide bombings, killings, and kidnappings. They are told that if they die while carrying out their mission, they will inherit the kingdom.

Religion

Many kidnappings in the world today have their root cause in religion. Some people love their religion so much that even when it teaches them something that is wrong, they believe it is right. One religious leader may want to take over another group—and order his men to kidnap his rivals.

Greed

Some people are not contented with what they have and wish they could buy more and more things—whether it's fancy clothes, cars, houses, or jewelry. This kind of persons may turn to crime to make more money. A wicked businessman can kidnap his business rival for a large ransom to become richer.

Politics

Corrupt politicians may arrange for the kidnapping of their opponents. Sometimes, they do this so that their opponents will make concessions or change their votes on the issues.

Corruption

A society where corruption is rife is likely to experience a high level of kidnapping. The truth is that if a government is corrupt and embezzling public funds, citizens may react by kidnapping those corrupt politicians in an attempt to recoup some of the stolen money.

Kidnapping Often Involves Torture or Rape

Kidnappers sometimes choose to torture their victims so that they can force money out of their relatives or associates. Sometimes, they may even torture for fun. One form of torture is rape.

Effects of Kidnapping

For the victims, there are many negative consequences of kidnapping, including:

  • Psychological trauma
  • Fear and lack of trust

Psychological Trauma

The negative psychological effects of being abducted are huge, especially for a child. Depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD) may last a lifetime.

Fear and Lack of Trust

In a society where the incidence of kidnapping is high, fear limits people's lives and actions. They will always move with caution as they do not know who might be the next target. The rich surround themselves with security guards because of their fear of getting kidnapped.

Solutions to Kidnapping

There are solutions that may help reduce the rate of kidnapping, including:

  • Training strong anti-kidnapping agents
  • Monitoring the activities of the police
  • Serious punishment for offenders
  • Job creation

Training Anti-Kidnapping Agents

Any country that wants to fight kidnapping successfully must hire and train capable agents to combat the issue. When law enforcement agencies are actively involved, the incidence of this crime can be lessened.

Monitoring the Police

Reports show that the police are involved in some kidnappings. Notable examples have occurred in Mexico. Eliminating the criminals within the ranks of law enforcement is key.

Seriously Punishments for Offenders

Mild punishment does nothing to deter criminals. When the government treats kidnappers harshly, fewer abductions will occur.

Job Creation

Generating jobs for citizens, especially for the youth, can have a huge impact in the fight against crime. When people are gainfully employed, they do not need to commit crimes.

Final Thoughts

Kidnapping has caused disorder in societies today. Kidnapping is a global problem with many root causes, including unemployment, poverty, religion, and politics. Each of these root causes must be evaluated and addressed in order to eliminate this terrible scourge once and for all.

Question: Is this article only about kidnapping in Nigeria?

Answer: Thanks for your question. It is not only related to Nigeria but a general view on kidnapping.

Question: Why are victims of kidnapping sometimes killed yet they are innocent?

Answer: I will start by telling you that there are evil activities in the world we live in. The reason why people do evil things you may find difficult to fully understand sometimes.

Sometimes victims of kidnapping are killed even though they are innocent because of but not limited to these reasons.

1. Breach of contract between the kidnappers and the people related to the victim when it comes to paying a ransom.

2. Stubborn behavior of the kidnapped

3. Religious reason and

4. Political reason

Question: What is the main reason why kidnappers do that job? Is it because of drugs or poverty?

Answer: Kidnapping has many consequences and among them are the following:

(1) Instability in the society

(2) Fear

(3) Lack of trust and

(4) Bad image creation

Question: How does a kidnapping affect the parents?

Answer: Kidnapping affects parents in some ways. Among those ways are:

(1) The fear of sending their children on errands

(2) Restlessness when their children are in schools

(3) High spending when they or their children are kidnapped

(4) High blood pressure when they could not reach their children in higher institutions on phone.

(5) The fear of attending public occasions

Question: Is kidnapping mainly due to the negligence of security agencies?

Answer: In my own judgement, I will say that the negligence of the security agents in any country is the main reason for kidnapping. Though there are other reasons but I stand on the opinion that their negligence is the main reason for such to occur. If there is tight security, the kidnappers will halt some of their actions because they will know that their probability of winning is very small.

Question: What are some more effects of kidnapping?

Answer: The more effects of kidnapping are as stated below:

(1) Economic Effect

A kidnapped individual who has been contributing greatly to the economic activities of his community may drop in such activity after paying ransom to the kidnappers. Some kidnappers are wicked and the charge they place on some of their victims can make them lose stand on their initial economic performance. The victims after being released from the kidnappers net may start performing low economically as a result of the paid high ransom.

(2) Poor life satisfaction

Many women today who were victims of kidnapping are not satisfied in life as a result of what they passed through in the hands of kidnappers. Some sometimes contact sexually transmitted diseases when raped by the kidnappers when they were in their net. The disease sometimes keep them in a state they do not like and are not satisfied in life.

Question: Do you think most kidnappers are educated?

Answer: I think most kidnappers in the recent years are educated.

Question: Did Atiku go to court?

Answer: Yes, Atiku went to court.

Question: Why is it that some kidnappers killed their target instead of seeking ransom?

Answer: There are reasons behind such action which can be any of the following:

(1) Misunderstanding between the abducted and the kidnappers.

(2) Inability of the relations of the kidnapped to provide the exact ransom.

(3) Attempt to bring in security officers to capture the kidnappers.

(4) Some hidden motives. Maybe the kidnappers were sent to kill the victim and not really for ransom.

Question: How can kidnapping occur?

Answer: Kidnapping can occur in a number of ways. Among them are:

(1) When people go to hidden places;

(2) When people show their riches in public places; and

(3) When people are not security conscious

Question: Can the death penalty resolve kidnapping issues?

Answer: I know that the death penalty is a harsh punishment but when the government of Anambra states of Nigeria passed that law, they have their reasons for doing that. But since the government of the state passed that law, kidnapping in the state has reduced. So, the death penalty can be a way to resolve kidnapping.

Question: What are the three main effects of kidnapping to the society?

Answer: The main effects of kidnapping to the society are:

(1) Fear

(2) Insecurity and

(3) Poor Freedom

Question: How to control it ?

Answer: There are many ways kidnapping can be controlled. They include:

(1) Strong National Security Check

If the security sector of any country experiencing kidnapping activities is strong enough, there will be control in such bad act. When the security officers are positioned in strategic areas and do their jobs effectively, there will be peace.

(2) Good Moral Practice

One of the reasons you see many youths and adults become members of kidnapping gang is lack of moral integration. Schools, families, churches, mosques and social gatherings should teach and promote how to do things right. If this is done, it will go a long way to control abduction in individual countries.

(3) Job Creation

One of the reasons why people in Africa, Europe, Asia, and Australia still experience kidnap activities is because many are unemployed. Job creation will create room to keep many people busy and take their minds away from such bad act.

Question: Can kidnapping be linked with economic sabotage?

Answer: From my own point of view, kidnapping can be linked to that challenge.

Question: Why do people get kidnapped in the first place?

Answer: People get kidnapped maybe for ransom or for other reasons. Explaining further, the reasons why people get kidnapped can be because of the following:

For ransom

In this kind of kidnapping, the abductors want the relations of the kidnapped to pay some amount of money before their release.

(2) For Political reason

In this kind of kidnapping, the kidnapped is a politician. Maybe a rival sends the boys to carry out such for proper interrogation or torture.

(3) For Rituals

People that are into fetish practices sometimes involve in a kidnapping. In this kind, the victim ends up losing his or her life.

Question: Is kidnapping useful?

Answer: As evil is not useful, so is kidnapping not useful.

Question: How does the way you dress influence kidnapping?

Answer: Your dressing in some cases can send some kinds of signals to people. These signals can be good or bad. It can make people to evaluate your worth in the society.

If one dresses in a way that is extravagant, it can attract kidnappers. When you show people that you are too rich, it can make kidnappers to put you in the record of their targets.

It is advised that even if one is so rich, he or she should dress moderately. If people show to the society that they are very rich, the society is evil and the evil ones can kidnap them for ransom.

Question: What is the increase in kidnapping?

Answer: From my own understanding, the increase in kidnapping is the rise in the rate kidnapping activity is carried out in a particular area.

If there is an increase in kidnapping in a particular society, what it means is that the bad act is of the rise. Meaning that bad practice is growing in that area.

Question: Do you really think punishment can be a solution?

Answer: Yes for sure, punishment can be a solution. When those who are guilty of kidnapping are punished, others will learn their lessons.

Muhammad Kabir on May 25, 2019:

Hi !! Actually l search and seek information on Google about kidnapping because it is very common in my state Katsina. How l wish that this context contains the types of kidnapping, so that l can see if there is any group of kidnappers that demands human life !! Initially as u said, kidnapping is done mostly for money, but here in Katsina, you can hear that a group of kidnappers, kidnapped some one who can not even afford to feed himself or his family daily, and finally claiming a ransom of five million.

Tall me, which class of kidnapping does this belongs !? We only pray for Allah's protection, because even government or Buhari's administration show lack of interest to stop the activities of these stupid men and women through their securities. Really reading this post has made me to know more about kidnapping and how to be extra careful. Thanks
