A chronicle of kidnaps in Northern Nigeria

Reading Time: < 1 minute

From December of 2020 till date, I have had the daunting privilege to cover all of the abductions in Northern Nigeria.

It has been both challenging and revealing.

There are several many questions to interrogate.

What is fueling all of these abductions?

Northern Nigeria has been rife with banditry, abductions and terrorist attacks, most of whom I have covered and being on ground physically.

In this report, I have chronicled the abductions from December to till early part of this year.

Sadly, there are more that have occurred even after this report.

Take a listen
