The fear of kidnappers, for some of Nigeria’s successful top corporate players and bank head honchos, seems to be the beginning of wisdom. Not just because of militants’ predilection for creating a storm in a tea cup, but because of their newfound sport; kidnapping.
In the last couple of years, the kidnapping scourge has gone beyond just capturing Caucasians working in oil companies. Now, Nigerians, especially the elites, are becoming prime targets.
SaharaReporters has learned that a group of heavily armed kidnappers yesterday abducted Margaret Emefiele, the wife of Nigeria’s Central Bank Governor, Godwin Emefiele.
A source close to Mr. Emefiele told our correspondent that Mrs. Emefiele was kidnapped along the Benin-Agbor Road. Our source disclosed that the kidnappers have made contact with their victim’s husband, adding that they were demanding a huge sum in ransom.
Margaret Emefiele, like her husband, is dignified. The dutiful wife of CBN Governor affects the moon’s modest nature. This makes her entrancing to behold and relate with. Her splendour is never fully displayed for long for mortal eyes to indulge.
Margaret is unpretentious in humility. Her unabashed modesty offers valuable lessons on what wantonness should be scorned and what values to court. She looks to simplicity, embraces purity, lessens the self and diminishes desire.
Margaret is easy-going and indifferent to the frills and thrills, vanities and shenanigans of high society. Not even her husband’s position and power have changed her outlook on life.
However, Emefiele’s kidnap represents one of the most high-profile kidnap cases in 2016. Our effort to reach the CBN governor were unsuccessful.
