“That’s when a victim will ask friends and family to sell everything to raise the ransom – house, cars, goods, just everything”, NAN quotes one saying.

Local doctors have confirmed that some kidnap victims have required treatment for snake bites following their release.

Nigeria has seen an increase in kidnappings, with ever greater sums being extorted.
