News from home and abroad with Rhod Sharp

Kidnapped from her palace...Up All Night gets the latest on the search for a member of Nigerian royalty who's been abducted. Kamene Okonjo, the mother of Nigeria's Finance Minister, was taken from her home on Sunday afternoon. Dr Ona Ekhomu from the School of Management and Security in Lagos tells us how these profit kidnaps are rife - with the vast majority of abductions only resolved when a ransom is paid. He also tells Rhod how this should never have happened, as Mrs Okonjo should have been protected by police guards--an example of what he calls 'irresponsible guardianship'.

To Australia, where police are warning drivers not to rely on Apple maps after several were directed to a piece of scrubland inside a national park - when they were in fact looking for a town, where they could buy water and fuel. Inspector Simon Clemence from Victoria Police says at least 6 people have contacted them -- but many others may be affected. He describes the land they're driving to as desert scrubland - unlike any national park as we know them..which at 46 degrees could easily prove fatal. Apple has now updated its software.
