Editor’s note: Since the arrest of the billionaire kidnapper Evans, there have been different twists concerning his operations, information about his family and where he kept the proceeds of kidnap. On Thursday June 22, the Lagos state governor Akinwunmi Ambode signed into law the kidnapping prohibition bill that prescribes either life imprisonment or death penalty for the kidnapper.
In a message sent to NAIJ.com, a Facebook user, Dhaddy Samuel Okoro explains why corrupt politicians should be given the treatment meted out to the notorious kidnapper Evans since he was arrested by the police.
Evans is a notorious kidnapper who deserves to be punished by law but not to an extent of executing him by hanging. How many people have been executed ever since the Lagos state government enacted the law? I am sure the answer is "none".
If the government insisted in killing Evans as a result of the crime he committed, that means so many people in Nigeria including the Lagos state must equally be brought to book.
Can you tell me who is upright generally in Nigeria especially the Nigerian politicians?
In Nigeria, many people being superiors or subordinates have involved in financial crime. In Nigeria, there are many basic types of kidnapping but I shall talk about only two.
1) The Innocent kidnappers..........example is Formal PDP President Mr. Obasanjo
2) The notorious kidnappers........example is the subject matter (Evans)
3) The terrorist kidnappers......example is known as Kabiru Sokoto
4) The ritualist Kidnappers.....example is known as Toafeek Hassan from LAGOS
1) The innocent kidnappers are high profile personalities found within the Nigerian political cycle and they are financial law breakers because they are only interested in swindling the funds that belong to poor masses.
They kidnapped the poor masses' financial benefits for their own family's luxurious use, spending in such an extravagant manner. The people found within this cycle of crime should not be left but bring them to book to face the crime they have ever committed because they are the birds with evil wings in the same line of kidnappers.
2) The notorious kidnappers become lawlessness as a result of the abnormal activities of the Innocent kidnappers hence they had got no privilege to be involved within the Nigerian political cycle therefore go after the individuals instead of Government.
However, both the innocent and notorious kidnappers have the same objective which is extracting money abnormally from the victims. How many of Nigerians have boldly walked to the street to protest for financial corruptions brought upon the poor masses by the innocent kidnappers?
Those that want Evans dead are ignorant of what is happening in Nigeria. There is no doubt that Evans is a notorious kidnapper but Nigerian politicians are the innocent kidnappers. Even the Nigerian law enforcement Agencies have refused to go after the innocent kidnappers because they are the same birds with evil wings.

All the same, all transgression is equal in the sight of God. Killing Evans would never stop corruption or neither will it stop notorious kidnappers going to their evil activities. Whenever our leaders lead well and the poor masses begin to benefit immensely from what is rightfully theirs, from the democratic government of Nigeria things would never fall apart again.
Can the son of Obasanjo or the son of any rich politicians in Nigeria become a notorious kidnapper? The answer is "NO". Nigerian government is being messed up by Obasanjo yet they kept quite I don't support crimes but this one is extraordinary. Remember, those that went into crime did that because of deplorable conditions our corrupt leaders brought upon us.
NAIJ.com had earlier reported that a young Nigerian, T Shine Sisi Eko threatened to kill lots of people if billionaire kidnapper Evans is killed.
He said if the inevitable happens, he would take up the kidnapping job of Evans and he would kill uncountable persons.
