Edo businessman, Rodney Ogagba, kidnapped in Lagos

 
What's with all these kidnappings naw, what's all this? Another person has been kidnapped in Lagos. His name Rodney Ogagba From Edo State. He was kidnapped on Saturday Morning September 3 at Alausa, Ikeja, just infront of Marwa Garden gate.
Mr Ogagba just returned From the US and was planning to open his new club right behind Sheraton, Ikeja. No contact from the kidnappers yet.

The question on my mind now is; how do these kidnappers know who to kidnap? They can't just pick people up randomly, so they must have done some kind of background check on their potential victims, and how do they get all the information they need? It has to be from an inside source. Family members, friends, colleagues of victims...

Abi, what do you guys think?

Most times they get their sources from people close to the victims. Family members, relatives,friends, workers. Its very sad.

its true linda a yoruba proverb say its members of ur house that do u harm becos of jealousy or if the person is greedy. and pple should learn to talk less for example announce that 150million will be paid to ur acct e.t.c.

Could be an inside job, could be a person behaving like a JJC, and thus indicating he's new to town.

As someone who has been kidnapped and released before, I can attest to the fact that most kidnap plots are hatched with an insider in the loop. An exception would be the case where you get kidnapped alongside 18 other passengers in a commercial bus. In that case, you may have been in the wrong place at the wrong time. Besides that, every kidnap victim must have been tailed for weeks prior to the D-day.

Its possible they could have gleaned information from social networking sites. A lot of people do not take proper care when sharing information on such sites

He is an American citizen and a great guy, a jolly good fellow who is always ready to assist people. May God cause confusion in the camp of these hoodlums and cause them to free him unscathed. Am sure the US embassy will get involved once contacted. This man is too nice to suffer this, I know him personally. Linda, thanks for carrying this story and let's make enough noise to get the authorities to do something.

Almost always family members providing the info.

Nigeria is a fucked up country! And what is funny is that the fools that resides in it tries to compares their miserable lives with others in more civilized societies around the world. They have a babble head in Abuja who looks like he just got off high on Heroin.

Majority of the time its always family members or friends. Damn shame! With friends like that, who needs enemies?

God will surely punish all those that plotted this kidnap, uncle rodney is a very very good man with a good heart, helped so many people (known and unknown). The innocence and prayers of those he has helped in the past and those he still helping will see him thru dis sadden situation, The good Lord shall vindicate him in Jesus name. cryinggggg

Rodney has been released, he actually lives in my estate. I don't know how much eventually exchanged hands, I heard the kidnappers initially asked for 500 million naira. God help us all, no where is safe these days.

Hi Linda, please you need to check out who anonymous 12.10 is cus he is a suspect. No one has called Rodney's family for any money, believe me, I know for sure, let alone Rodney being released. How can people say what they don't know. Na wa o. Please he has not been released and his captors are yet to contact anyone! His family still needs prayers from everyone for his safety.
