According to the BBC of the 800 Britons registered as living in the Niger Delta, 33 have been kidnapped in the past year.

(The percentages are staggering. The most recent case where a three-year-old British girl was kidnapped shows how bad it’s become, she was the third child to be kidnapped in the last six weeks. Luckily she was reunited with her parents after being freed by her kidnappers, but they had held her for four days during which time the family went through hell.)
