Kidnappers change tactics

Kidnappers have now adopted a new method of getting at their victims by disguising as police personnel in complete uniform on road duty.
According to recent victims, the kidnappers in police uniform will pretend to be checking vehicle particulars. Before you known it, they have boarded their victims’ vehicles and ordered them to drive to the police station, purpotedly for further interrogation by the senior officer.
But on the way they divert the victims and their vehicles to their hideouts where they inform them that they have been kidnapped and ask them to phone their relations to pay some ransom for their release.
The trend which has been on the increase this yuletide is said to have spread to other major cities in Nigeria, including Abuja and Lagos.
