Those complaining about the kidnappings taking place in Nigeria will be shocked to learn that in France people actually pay money to get kidnapped.
Nollywoodgossip learned that a basic abduction package in France will cost you about $1,300 (N195, 000). And it’s not the ransom, but for actually getting yourself kidnapped.
If you’re looking to be kidnapped, then Eastern France is the place you need to be, where a small company called Ultime Realite provides the unique service. The basic package consists of being seized by strangers, bound, gagged and bundled into a car, and kept in a dark cellar for four hours. Advanced packages include tailor-made services such as boat chases, helicopter escapes, and being kept for longer periods of time.
According to the company’s website, “You will go through the real sensations of violence, terror, and fear of a real kidnapping – a psychological shock that you won’t forget in a hurry.” As a customer at Ultime Realite, you can choose exactly the kind of scenario you want, but you will have no idea when or where disaster will strike. The contract states that “we will follow you for a few days. At an opportune moment, in the street or elsewhere, we kidnap you.”
