Among the many ugly birds that fly over our roofs in the middle of the night is one very ugly one called kidnapping.

The sight of it creates fear and panic among the elitist and the diplomatic corps.

The scent of it creates running nose and jiggling stomach for the young girls and the security agencies.

This ugly bird must be tackled using a multi-pronged approach if we so desire to kill it at once and win the fight in no time.

Considering the fact that it’s a relatively new phenomenon that has found its way into Ghana, our systems and processes are struggling a bit to find a credible and workable way out of it and to address the stakeholders properly.

Kidnapping and Ransom Management is a special technique that requires confidence, objectivity and effectiveness.

Communication strategy and negotiation processes and structures must be apt and efficient.

Deployment of the frontline officers must be done with precision and accuracy, based on a workable and operational intelligence.

Tactical training and equipment must be taking above board since the gangs involved in this crime are well educated, resourceful and have the capabilities to outwit and outrun any swift-footed and heavy-chested law enforcement officer.

As a nation, we must wake up to the realities of the presence of this ugly bird called kidnapping and put in an efficient national strategy to deal with it appropriately. Otherwise, it will stay with us against our wills and wishes for far a bit longer.

The danger is that it will brand our nation badly, and eventually affect our diplomatic relations. The tourism industry will also suffer many hiccups to a large extent.

Together, we can help make Ghana our motherland safer and peaceful.

If you smell something ugly, see something ugly, and hear something ugly, report it as quickly as possible to the appropriate authorities.

God bless Ghana and God bless humanity.
