Unknown Gunmen Kidnap Federal High Court Judge

A judge with the Federal High Court, Akure, Ondo State Justice Abdul Dogo, has been kidnapped by unknown gunmen.

Justice Dogo was abducted on Tuesday by unknown gunmen while he was returning to Akure from Abuja.

A lawyer, on condition of the anonymity, confirmed this to our correspondent.

Though the details of how the judge was abducted were still sketchy as of the time of filing this report on Wednesday, a source narrated that Dogo’s vehicle was stopped by the abductors on the Okene-Isua Akoko Expressway and the judge was dragged out of the vehicle and taken away to an unknown destination in the bush.

It was later gathered that a few hours after the abduction, the hoodlums contacted the family of the judge, demanding a N50 million ransom.

The source said, “The judge is still in the kidnappers’ den because I don’t think the family has been able to pay any ransom to the bandits as at now.”
