The abduction games seem to have now reached unprecedented levels as criminals have upped the tempo in their game. Law enforcement agents and authorities have to devise ways which will ensure the safety of citizens. With high levels of unemployment, new opportunities are being discovered which makes one walk away with a fortune. It now seems like these syndicates are now operating everywhere in this country as they are leaving no stone unturned.
Back in the day, cases of abductions were only reported in the Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal Provinces. In what now appears like a maximization of the market, the syndicates are taking their victims from almost every part of this country.
According to a tweet that was shared by Yusuf Abramjee, four brothers were kidnapped on their way to school yesterday in the morning.
When the nation received the news, many concluded that Limpopo has now become just like Cape Town and Durban. In these two cities, this is where kids or a wife of a business person get kidnapped for a ransom.
It is believed that the suspect who kidnapped the four brothers are after milking money from their parents by demanding and a ransom. In this country, there are syndicates who have their accomplices in foreign countries.
Foreign nationals and those in the Indian community are the prime targets as they are known to keep large amounts of cash in their homes. Some spies are used to avail information regarding financial status of targets.
At the end of the day, the criminals make a fortune through demanding ransom monies from their victims. Out of fear of losing their loved ones, the victims usually comply as all they will be wanting would be to get their family members alive. In some incidents, victims are found dead while some have gone for years missing.
