The Economist Magazine, reporting on the sad development of kidnappings in Nigeria, reported that recent persons kidnapped include human rights lawyer Mike Ozekhome.  Mr. Ozekhome was kidnapped by unknown gunman on August 24 and released around September 12.  The Economist article (in the September 14, 2013 issue, on page 57) notes that "Until policing improves and people refuse ot pay, the scourge of kidnapping will persist--and the best of lawyers and churchmen will be vulnerable."  The article notes that another person kidnapped in Nigeria is Archbishop Ignatius Kattey.
