those who were shooting they were in camouflage uniform of the army and the police I thought it was the police and the army that were exchanging gun fire “It was later that we discovered that they could be armed robbers when we learned that they were armed robbers we have to stay where we are “They have captured so many vehicles they have blocked the road in front and we had to stay and they started searching every vehicle “When they got to my vehicle they asked for what I have and I gave them what was on me very little money not much money I gave it to them they left they said we should lay down and I lay down “And within the twinkle of an eye some of them came and said “where is Oga where is Oga” and as they were saying where is Oga they saw me where I was lying down beside the car they said “na you be the owner of this car” and I said yes “That is when they said “stand up” they just hold me by the waist and started dragging me into the bush and when I wanted to resist they gave me a dirty slap in fact my eyes turned blue and I had to obey them and follow them “At that initial level they dragged me into the bush and they said I should stand up and be walking I should be following them they held me by the waist and I was following them “A lot of things were coming into my mind I said could they be ritualist after all they have taken money why are they doing what they are doing “And we were into the bush we have walked for about 30 minutes they asked me to stop where I was three others people were brought to the same spot and one of my captors said I should stand up and walk into the bush and I felt if I stand up and am walking into the bush if he shot me from the back that is death “I refused I said No I said am going to stand up here he said walk into the bush I said No He has this cutlass in his hand he used the flat of the cutlass to beat me at the back and I refused to move One of them came he said “leave him leave him don’t bother leave him “They said I should sit down and I sat down and after about 30 minutes we started the journey into the bush we left where we were kept by 8pm and we had to continue to walk inside the bush “I was walking bare footed because my shoe everything have been removed So I was following them some were in the front leading us others were at the back following us and by 11:30 we arrived at a spot “When we got to that spot they said we should all lay face down and we all lay face down and what I discovered was that I was trying to watch to see what they were doing I discovered that the money they raid while the operation lasted on the road they were sharing the money “After sharing the money they now said this is where we are sleeping and we were there till the following morning “And by exactly 4am they said we should be on the move and we started another journey from 4am till 11:30am that same day “It was that day that they first talked to us one of them came to me and asked “How much do you have” I said I don’t have money he asked again “How much is in your bank account “I said there is no money in my bank account that if you want to know phone is with you bring my phone I can check my account there and you will see my balance there “He said okay “Who do you know that can give you money to bail you out He said my ransom was N20million another person they said his own was N10million another person they said his was N5million “Then I asked How can my own be N20million and they said “Na you be oga nah you no see yourself you no see the car wey we take you from na you be Oga say who you be sef” “When we were in the bush in the night I had this my card on me the card that I made where I put this thing that I use as complimentary card to give to people It was on me I had a rubber band that has my picture and my name on it “I tried to remove it and while we were still in the bush the previous night I hid it underneath leave I cut some leaves I put it on top of it and there I left it because I don’t want them to know my identity because knowing my identity could prove very difficult They could say they were settling for N100million and that could be very disastrous “When they asked I said okay I have people I can call let me call my son they said okay they gave me my phone and said call your son and what I did was that when they gave me the phone I was trying to send a message to my son instead of calling “They just took the phone from me they said we asked you to call your son and you are sending text message They said you will die today inside me I knew I was not going to die by the grace of God “After sometimes they came back they say who do you want to call I now gave them the number they called from there they were the ones negotiating the only time they will call my attention was to say “your people are not cooperating and because my people were not cooperating “they will threaten me one of them put dagger on my neck as if he wants to cut it and said tell them that they want to kill you now so that they can get the money and I will just say please whatever you can raise please raise it and bail me out “To be sincere with them they gave us food and the only food they gave us was bread they gave us bread I didn’t eat because I was fasting and I wanted to fast but there was no water “I requested for coke they now brought coke the following day and gave me one bottle which I drank in the night after breaking my fast I drank it I didn’t eat the bread” Olabimtan narrated “What happened is that you don’t sleep in one place twice after leaving that deep pit We will always be moved in the night nobody moves you in the morning they don’t move you in the day time and I don’t know why they were doing that “The third day they moved us in the night around 7pm We moved and moved and moved from 7pm till around 1am$ “We were trekking inside the bush before we now got to a mountain and there you will be seeing a part of kwali and Gwagwalada clearly and they said this is where we are going to stay till you will be bailed “And by 4pm on Wednesday came the cheering news from them that your ransom has been paid and the ransom of the Chairman Muslim

that was vastly superior in terms of fairness and justice to the many stakeholders Related News It is difficult to believe that a government will stake so much — risk of defeat in the Rajya Sabha political capital support of allies the Prime Minister’s time — on a mere land acquisition amendment Bill It is also difficult to believe that the Government has decided to brave farmers’ anger street protests and media criticism to get the amendment Bill passed by Parliament But that is how the story is unfolding Prime Minister Modi is leading the Government’s campaign in support of the Bill to amend the Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act 2013 (LARR Act) Mr Venkaiah Naidu Minister of Urban Development gives a byte a day Mr Arun Jaitley Minister of Finance is confrontational one day and conciliatory the next Mr Birender Singh Minister of Rural Development (who will pilot the Bill) is for the most part silent Reports indicate that the RSS and its affiliated organisations are divided on the Bill The old Land Acquisition Act of 1894 was an oppressive and exploitative colonial legislation It took free India 66 years to repeal that Act and pass a law that was vastly superior in terms of fairness and justice to the many stakeholders That the law was passed nearly unanimously with the support of the principal opposition party (BJP) was a tribute to the collective wisdom of Parliament It therefore came as a bolt from the blue that the new Government within six months of coming into office took up amending the LARR Act as one of its priorities The Government advised the President to promulgate an ordinance on the midnight of December 31 2014 I commented on the ordinance in a column that was published in this newspaper on January 18 2015 (Stand up and be counted) My argument was that dispensing with Social Impact Assessment and the ‘consent’ clause in practically every significant case of land acquisition was an assault on the soul of the LARR Act Nine changes in Bill As opposition to the ordinance mounted the Government brought nine changes in the Bill to replace the ordinance The Government’s ministers swore that every concern had been addressed and it was the duty of every patriotic Indian to support the Bill The Bill was passed by the Lok Sabha but faced fierce opposition in the Rajya Sabha In the absence of a replacement Bill passed by both Houses of Parliament the ordinance lapsed on April 5 2015 Playing with high stakes the Government has promulgated an ordinance once again The new ordinance is the old ordinance plus the nine changes The nine changes have been trumpeted as if they were nine steps to nirvana As far as I can recall no minister of the Government has bothered to tell us what these nine changes are I therefore decided to do a clinical dissection of the nine changes and here is what I found Cosmetic and substantive Three changes are cosmetic nothing has been changed In the crucial Section 10A there was an exclusionary clause for “infrastructure and social infrastructure projects” Now the phrase “social infrastructure” has been dropped But the word “infrastructure” remains and the exclusion remains Secondly in Section 24 the word “account” has been replaced by the words “designated account” Thirdly the language of Section 87 has been recast but the requirement of obtaining sanction before a court may take cognisance of an offence is intact Three changes are exhortatory The Government has been told to ensure that only the bare minimum land required for an infrastructure project is acquired The Government has also been directed to prepare and maintain a record of the wasteland it owns And finally the LARR Authority that will hear objections to the land acquisition or to the award of compensation has been required to hold its hearing in the district where the land is located Only three changes may be called substantive: 1 The amendment favouring “private hospitals and private educational institutions” has been dropped 2 In the case of land acquisition for industrial corridors Social Impact Assessment and the ‘consent’ clause will be dispensed with only if land up to 1 km on either side of the corridor is acquired Actually this will complicate matters because two procedures have to be followed in case land up to and beyond one kilometre is acquired 3 Section 31 sub-section (2) clause (h) has been amended to require that the award shall include particulars of mandatory employment to at least one member of each affected family This is an improvement upon existing clause (h) and makes explicit what was earlier implicit Core objection remains We may welcome the three substantive changes but what about the core objection to the attempt
