Gunmen abducted Justice Joy Uwanna, a high court judge, along with her driver in Oron Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State.
Tragically, the judge’s orderly was killed during the incident on the Uyo-Okobo road.
Toroscho Eyene, Chairman of the Oron branch of the Nigeria Bar Association (NBA), confirmed the abduction, stating that the judge was taken while returning to Uyo after a court session.
Eyene mentioned plans for an association meeting with the State Commissioner of Police and the Department of State Services (DSS) the following day to address the issue.
Efforts to reach the Akwa Ibom State Police Command’s Public Relations Officer, Odiko Macdon, for comments were unsuccessful at the time of this report.
