Dark Moments As Gun Men Reportedly Kidnapped A Judge

A 59 year old Judge, Mr Husaaini Samaila from Abuja Nigeria was reported to have been kidnapped by gunmen at Safana Local Government, according to the nation reports.

The police have also confirmed his kidnapping. According to the residents, the gunmen raided the court premises located at Bauren Zakat Village and took him away. 

However the authorities have questioned why the said Judge went to the court despite the court being relocated from the village to Safana due to too much insecurities in the place.

"What was he doing in the court?" Public Relations Officer of Katsina State Police Command, Mr Gambo Isah, wondered.

"The Court has already been relocated from the village to Safana due to security challenges. Nobody was aware of his visit to the court, more so when there is an ongoing strike by judicial workers," he added.

To add on this, the courts were on strike to demand for financial autonomy of the Judiciary hence questions are arising on what the judge went to do on the court with even asking for protection.

The place has recorded many case of such and now the people are worried about the Judge.
