An accidental telephone conversation with a Canadian kidnap victim in Nigeria


What happens when you inadvertently get a Canadian kidnap victim in Africa on the phone? That’s what reporters at the Edmonton Journal found out yesterday when, by fluke, they called the number of a cell phone still in the possession of Julie Mulligan, the Drayton Valley, Alta., woman abducted last Thursday while leading a Rotary Club team in Nigeria. The result is a dramatic, old-fashioned newspaper moment: “Are you OK?” asks the reporter. “I think I’m getting sick,” says Mulligan.
