Bayelsa State Governor Dickson’s Sister reportedly still in Kidnappers’ Custody after 42 Days

Nancy-DicksonThe Nation Newspaper is reporting that Nancy Keme Dickson sister of Bayelsa State Governor Seriake Dickson is still in the custody of kidnappers, 42 days after his abduction.

The 26 year old was reportedly kidnapped on the 19th of December 2015.

“She was seized at her shop on Okaka Road in Yenagoa, the state capital.

The gunmen, who reportedly drove in an ash Lexus Jeep, were said to have trailed her to the shop and whisked her away to an unknown place at 2:50pm.”

The Nation claims a source revealed that the Governor is reluctant to pay a ransom.

The source, who spoke in confidence, noted that Dickson had ordered his family not to pay ransom to Nancy’s abductors.

He recalled that the governor took a similar action when gunmen abducted the mother of a commissioner in his administration.

The source added: “The governor does not believe in paying ransom to kidnappers. When his mother was kidnapped, the abductors demanded ransom but the governor turned down their request. They kept the woman until they became tired and set her free.

    42 days? Doesn’t believe in paying ransom? They will release her when they get tired? Is that some kind of sick joke? All the people that pay ransom are they fools? Unless she is not his blood sister, this Dickson must have some issues. Then again the story might not be true………it just doesn’t add up.

      Wow he has mind ooo….while i do agree with the principles but naija kidnappers are useless and have no mind or conscience. What if they are rapping her everyday or eventually kill her. Some families have paid and still didnt see their love one . I heard many cases when the person was released naked

      Its a hard call but 42 days is too long…. Gosh thank God he is not my father . I feel so sorry for her

      The sister is probably toast by now. Dickson, have you not heard of what they do to kidnapped persons when their relatives don’t pay ransom? I don’t support paying ransom but please she has been there 42 days already. Have you tried to fake paying ransom to arrest the kidnappers? Chai. Don’t sacrifice your sister for your seemingly misplaced values. How come this value of not paying for evil does not transcend electing you into office?

    A Haitian woman wrote a book with the same exact plot – young woman kidnapped in Haiti and her rich father refused to pay. The book is called Untamed State by Roxanne Gay. That woman was brutalized. And eventually someone had to pay.

    How can anyone subject their famiky to 42 days kidnapping!!

    “A person’s riches may ransom their life,
    but the poor cannot respond to threatening rebukes.” Proverbs 13: 8

    Governor Dickson can certainly not be categorised as poor; he has the riches with which to “respond to the threats” of the kidnappers; he has the riches with which to ransom his sister’s life.

    To leave a woman with kidnappers for 42 days?! When he has shown them the value he places on her, how does he expect that they will treat her? What kind of mental state does he expect that she will be in? When added to the terrible trauma of the kidnap and being in the hands of kidnappers in their lair, in the hands of a group of violent men, hardened criminals and thugs, as possibly the only woman, to all this is added the knowledge and the taunts and psychological and whatever else kind of torture by her captors, that her brother, his excellency the Executive Governor, has refused to pay her ransom and rescue her from their clutches; day after day after day, for 42 days.

    This, itself, is criminal. This, itself, is man’s inhumanity to man. This, itself, is denial and violation of her human rights, and her rights as his sister.

    Why are womens’ groups, NGOs, activists, women parliamentarians and female cabinet members in the FEC, etc not calling for the rescue and rehabilitation of this lady, and the impeachment of her so-called brother, the governor?

    Would he wish that on himself?

    Even if the kidnappers never raped her, after 42 days at their mercy, who will believe it? How would she ever prove her virtue intact? prove she was not the kidnappers’ plaything for over a month? How will she get married? to whom of any substance?

    “And looking at them Jesus said to them, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26

    “Then he is gracious unto him, and saith, Deliver him from going down to the pit: I have found a ransom.” Job 33: 24

    In JESUS’ Name, Amen.
