FTFA: "The crime is particularly prevalent in the oil-rich Delta State, although high-profile victims are uncommon.

You're doing it wrong...

How is it folks don't leave? This can't have been a complete surprise, can it?

I mean, I woke up one morning and realized that staying with my first wife was suicidal, packed a bag and left.

Some things you can make meaningful change and some you can't - knowing the difference is the key I suppose.

The kidnappers have sent the police 5 of the vowels in her name as proof that they have her and will remove 5 more if they are not paid in 24 hours.

Begoggle: kidnapped

I just assumed "kidnaped" was some subtle blending of "kidnapped" and "raped".

I'm guessing the high-profile ones have decent protection, therefore not worth the risk.

Somebody do a google on "Miss Solomon Part Zento" to see what Farkers can do to a 419 scammer when they all gang up on her.

So... They shrank her neck? Isn't that fashionable?

Is it kidnaped or kid-kidnaped?
2012-12-10 11:04:23 PM  
I hope the didn't kidnap her in a Prius!

ftfa: Nigeria is one of the worst countries in the world for kidnapping, where it is a lucrative criminal enterprise worth millions of dollars a year.

Wouldn't that make it one of the best countries in the world for kidnapping?
