Akwa Ibom Lawyers Protest Kidnap Of Judge

Akwa Ibom State High Court in Oron Local Council Area was shut down on Wednesday following the kidnapping of Justice Joy Unwana and the murder of her police orderly, Inspector ThankGod Edet, by unknown gunmen.

The kidnappers reportedly have yet to establish contact with her family members or colleagues.

Addressing a press conference on Wednesday, the Oron branch of the Nigeria Bar Association, NBA, condemned the act and called on the state government as well as security agencies to investigate the matter speedily and ensure that the judge and her driver regain their freedom.

They also observed that the Okobo Esuk Inwang-Ndon Ebom Road, where the judge was kidnapped, has become a blackspot for criminal activities because of its long-winding bends and lack of street lights.
