recaptive
 n.— «Colonized by the British, these two countries almost have similar historical backgrounds, more so with regards the Trans Atlantic slave trade. That exercise which saw many Africans recaptured on the high seas at the height of the abolition of what was largely perceived as inhuman trade, gave credence to the above supposition. Many of those recaptives, as they were called, were from Nigeria.» —“What Will Sierra Leoneans Learn From the Nigerian Elections?” by Mohamed Asmieu Bah Concord Times (Freetown, Sierra Leone) May 17, 2007.
