Kidnapping in the Niger Delta has been an ongoing phenomenon since around 2008. Starting from the kidnapping of expatriate oil workers by the militants, the scourge of kidnapping had progressively unravelled till it has now become so common place that anyone potentially is a target for the assortment of kidnapping groups that have since plagued the region.

The author was kidnapped on the 1st of May 2016 from his home in Port Harcourt in very interesting circumstances. Gunmen stormed his home in the Rumuomasi area of Port Harcourt in the middle of the night, shot their way in to the house and after robbing them clean of valuables, proceeded to make away with the head of the house.

This began a journey into the hinterlands of the Niger Delta creeks as he was held for ransom for 4 days and 4nights in the most excruciating conditions.

The story is not simply of his experience in the captivity; it Is not even all about the intrigues of how the author, who happens to be a Pastor of a small branch of a major church navigated his way through captivity, nor just of his perilous and near death experiences of his journey back to mainland Port Harcourt after his release, having paid ransom. Rather the story captures the real reason for the kidnap.

The book recorded the stories of the authors experiences in captivity, and his feelings and thoughts about the event, the gang, the community where he was held, and the impact of this negative influence upon the society at large.

The author spoke about how it turns out that he had been sent to minister deliverance to the gang leader in captivity, and how God gave him a number of prophecies to be shared with the gang leader (including the fact that he will soon become a Pastor of a church that he will build for God) and his men; also concerning the land of the Kalabaris that had become scourged with violence and bloodshed. In short, the author’s experience narrated in the book tells the story of how the hunter became the hunted.

The high point of the book was the author’s bloody walk through the swamplands of the delta as he tried to get to land and be reunited back to his family after the ordeal, and the amazing kindness of ordinary fishermen who came to his aid when he had almost given up on the effort to stay alive.
