|Abstract:||Kidnapping is national threat and capable of disintegrating the country if not properly checked. Kidnapping simply means to seize and detain unlawfully, by force or fraud and remove persons to an undisclosed location against their will and usually for use as hostage or to extract ransom. It is sad that this unwholesome act ha made many entrepreneurs to relocate their businesses to other parts of the country where kidnapping is les vulnerable while others have relocated to neighbouring countries where their return on investment will be highly secured. On the other hand entrepreneurship is the willingness and ability of an individual to seek out investment opportunities in an environment, and be able to establish and run an enterprise successfully based on the identified opportunities. Secondary sources of information were employed. In order to salvage the situation, some recommendations were made which include: The government should enact laws making kidnapping a capital offence punishable by life jail in their respective states. This is against the federal law that prescribes 10-year jail term, among others.|
