A terrible event took place in Nigeria where a man’s family paid a large ransom to free him, but the man was nonetheless cruelly killed by the kidnappers.
The victim, who his heartbroken sibling only referred to as “Emma,” was first taken hostage by gunmen who shot him inside his car before dragging him into the depths of the wilderness.
Despite the family’s desperate efforts, paying a ransom of 5 million Naira, their loved one was killed.
Particularly because of its close proximity to a police checkpoint—which was reportedly less than five minutes away from the scene of the kidnapping—the incident has provoked serious anger.
PopsyBillie, the victim’s sibling on Twitter, posted the heartbreaking message expressing shock and despair over the untimely death. The message addressed the larger problem of safety and security in Nigeria while also expressing the family’s suffering and loss.
The victim’s sibling urged fellow Nigerians to acknowledge the gravity of the country’s security crisis and committed to care for everyone the victim left behind.
