JUST IN: Bandits Kidnap Appeal Court Judge, Kill Police Orderly

Honourable Justice Chioma Nwosu of the Court Of Appeal, Benin Division, was on Wednesday kidnapped by gunmen in Benin, capital of Edo state.

The police orderly accompanying the judge, Inspector A. I. Momoh, was also gruesomely killed by the gunmen before they took the Judge away.

It was gathered that the gunmen numbering four, trailed the vehicle of the Judge from Ramat Park end of the Benin-Agbor road in their Toyota Voltron car and intercepted her around Christ Chosen Church of God International.

An eye witness who craved anonymity said that immediately after intercepting the judge, the hoodlums shot the tyre of her Toyota SUV, forcing it to a halt.
