Gunmen Abduct Akwa Ibom Judge, Police Escort Killed   


Gunmen on Monday abducted Justice Joy Uwanna, a high court judge, and her driver in the Oron Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State. Tragically, the police orderly accompanying them was shot dead on the spot.

The abduction took place along the Uyo-Okobo Road as the judge was being driven home to Uyo by her driver after a court session in Oron. The assailants, displaying audacity and precision, seized the female judge and her driver, leaving behind a grim scene with the lifeless body of the police escort.

Odiko MacDon, the State Police Public Relations Officer, expressed deep regret over the incident, labeling it as “unfortunate.”

He revealed that the Commissioner of Police has issued orders for a discreet investigation into the abduction.

“It’s very unfortunate that a judge who presides over the high court has been kidnapped. The command under the CP, Olatoye Durusinmi, has ordered a discreet investigation,” he stated

“As we speak, no stone will be left unturned, resources will be harnessed to ensure that Her Lordship is reunited with her family any moment from now. 

“I have spoken with the family of the deceased officer who, until his death was an orderly to the judge. Justice will be served and the perpetrators will be brought to book.”
