Case Study: Kidnap and Ransom Case in Nigeria in 2010
A businessman from the mining sector was kidnapped alongside his driver while driving back to his home in the summer of 2010. The kidnappers overtook the victim’s vehicle before firing shots at it to disable the car and bring it to a halt. The victim was blindfolded and frequently moved to different locations. Within the first few hours of captivity, the captors demanded a ransom of 500m naira (USD3,300,000).
With the guidance of K&R consultants, an undisclosed ransom was paid and the victim was released. The consultants worked closely with local police during the incident.
The co-operation of the consultants ultimately resulted in the arrest of the perpetrators.
