'My ordeal in the hands of kidnappers' - Mike Ozekhome recounts

The human rights lawyer (pictured above with his wife after his release) who said he will never forget his experience in the hands of his abductors, narrated his ordeal to journalists in his home in Lagos.

Ozekhome, who had grown a beard, said he was driven on a rough road for about four hours to a jungle far removed from civilisation blindfolded, after he was captured close to Benin City about 3pm on August 23, 2013.

According to Ozekhome, the abductors took him to an uncompleted building in the bush while a colony of mosquitos descended and fed on him and other hostages like barbeque in the camp.

According to him, from the moment of his abduction on August 23, he and 12 other victims were blindfolded by the gang in the camp. Continue...



Ozekhome also said any time they wanted to speak to their abductors, they must face the ground, as looking at them (kidnappers) could hand the offender instant death sentence.

 “Every 24 hours of the day, we had death sentence hanging on our head. When any of the kidnappers wanted to speak to us, we must face the wall or the ground. They treated me gently because they said they had discovered I’m on the side of the masses, that I have been fighting for the masses.

Speaking further, he explained that his psychological and physical trauma was compounded when his son, Barrister Ilugbekhai and one of his juniors in chambers, Barrister Dominic Ezerioha, were lured and eventually detained with him in the camp.

He described his abductors as highly organised and well educated, which, according to him, made it difficult for security operatives to track them down.

He said: “Even when making phone calls to the families of the victims, they travelled across four or five states so that where they make the calls was different from where their victims were kept. They discussed national issues with high intellect.

“These are graduates of various disciplines, I believe. They understand philosophy, history, political science and, as I said, they have their medical team. One of them said he had graduated for six years without a job and they argued that only 1 per cent of Nigerians have fraudulently cornered the nation’s wealth; so they raise argument to justify their actions.”

“They vowed that, in 2015, they will move against the politicians who they accused of being in the habit of using and dumping them. I asked them, what is the way out? They requested that the federal government should also grant them amnesty and that they are ready to lay down their arms if they are given amnesty just like the Niger Delta militants.

“They said they are ready to come out of the jungle to remove their masks and join the roundtable talk if there is assurance that they will not be arrested by the government.”

According to Ozekhome, the kidnappers have several units and cells across the nation. “For example, they mentioned several notable Nigerians who had been kidnapped in the past in the north, east and west, which they claimed were through their network.”

Contrary to the general belief that the kidnappers usually conduct background information about their victims, Ozekhome said his abductors told him that they just operate randomly and that they don’t profile anybody before they are captured.

 “For example, they said they did not know me. They searched through my pocket. They collected everything including my card. So when they asked for my name and I told them, they said yes it is true.”

Moving forward, Ozekhome urged the federal government to declare a state of emergency on insecurity. According to him, a situation where none of us is safe on the road, in the air, on the water, in the day time or at night is a serious and monumental problem and we cannot continue to fold our hands.

He linked the problem of insecurity fundamentally to the massive youth unemployment in the country which he described as complex and gargantuan.

Consequently, he called on the government to declare a state of emergency on youth unemployment as any further delay may spell doom for the nation. He described youth unemployment as the father of Boko Haram, militancy, kidnapping and robbery.

Summarily, government is the cause of all these! no jobs, employment rate zero, price of goods and commodities..high! what do you want people to do?? people are angry, people are hungry! men have families, no job to take care of them nor send their kids to schools. it translates.

I repeat! people are getting deperate! our politicians are enriching themselves forgetting the masses put them where they are.

WAKE UP NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT!!!!!!!!

or else????? I don't see this kidnapping menace coming to an end any time soon.

too bad!

I hope the kidnappers keep to their promise of turning on corrupt politicians come 2015.
You know its a major problem when criminal acts become organised with subordinate units scattered across the country.

I remember when we sang 'parents listen to your children, we are the leaders of tomorrow' that was donkey years ago. Apparently Nigeria does not understand the concept of 'tomorrow'. For more than 40 years it's being the same people ruling Nigeria, either in military regalia or civilian. Whether as president or as senator, they are all the same people. Having seen that joke where a teacher asks a boy: Nigeria will be better tomorrow. What type of sentence is that? And the boy replies: Future Impossible tense. Exactly. When you continue to use a particular formula 4 a problem and get d same result, change your approach abi? For Nigeria? Pfft!!! The same people have been running in circles 4 40yrs. FYI this amnesty thing will come to chew our ass one day. 1st militants, then BH, then kidnappers, may rapists, murderers soon.

Govt should do something about job creation,starting from restoring electricity,putting our refinaries in order as well as building infrastructures that will enhance development,this is going to give ample opportunities for industries to sprang up as well as reducing the cost of production of goods and services.with this cost of living will be low and all these issues of arm robbery,kidnappng,boko haram will be a thing of the past.

Ok. Bad joke. I'm glad he is home safely. It's a real pity that our graduates have to resort to such riidculously low levels to be heard. There are truly no jobs at all in this country. Everybody trades. Buy and sell. No manufacaturing. No jobs. And they keep reducing the number of banks in the country thus increasing the number of unemployed persons.

Advice to our young graduates. It is not by force to work in a bank to telco. Go and start something small and grow your own business and employ our future graduates Abeg! No more drug trafficking, kidnapping and travelling abroad for greener pastures.

Kidnapping innocent people can never be justified, Nigeria is not the only country where things are tough but Nigerians will always find a reason to justify their bad deeds. I guess its also the lack of youth unemployment that is causing Nigerian youths in USA, UK, Malaysia, Singapore, Ukraine, Spain etc to be doing fraud and crime. It's such a shame because these kidnappers will never be arrested. Everybody wants quick money and no one wants to work, the system is rotten, Nigerians cant handle a democratic setting. We as a people are so lawless and wayward

oro di hun said...

The kidnapper's thought process and actions is a little plausible. The govt has never cared about the masses from the get go, so kidnapping every day individuals that are trying to make a living does not make the govt or politicians lose sleep. When kidnappers start kidnapping the law makers themselves or their kids, then they will make it a national and urgent issue to curb youth unemployment and all the basic amenities that are not available.... Please note I am totally against kidnapping but I just know our politicians from day one, have been all about "me, myself, I and maybe my family"... so it wont phaze nor move them when ordinary every day naijas are stolen...

Rosie Said....... This is exactly my point,that those people and their families who has had the experience of kidnapping should form a pressure group and demand an end to this dangerous situation. If kidnappers can be organized and carry out their evil activities with military precision how much more a government.The government of Jonathan should be ashamed of themselves.Instead going to River's state to show how powerful he is,let him use that show of power to crush kidnappers,armed robbery,boko haram,tackle bribery and corrucption,mend our roads,uninterrupted power supply, portable water,education,the list goes on and on,sometimes i just wonder if we will ever get it togeather as nation.

Me I don't see any reaSon why hardworking nigerians should be kidnapped at random as a result of unemployment by the government. If the kidnappers think the government is the reason why dey are doing what they are doing, then they should kidnapp the peopLe in the government! The ones they think are corrupt!!!! They kidnapped a family friend and after the family paid millions they still haven't released till date! Its over a year now! And they are blaming the government and kidnapping civilians. I really don't unerstand! If they want to leave the jungle they should. No one knows who they are. All they are interested in is money from the fg and in their minds o they are getting justice. We all blame the government for everything but the corruption has eaten to the roots of this nation. Heads of committees down to secondary school level are all chopping money. The fact that the situation in the country is bad doesn't make you as a person lose ones sense of right and wrong!
