Kidnapping activities in Kogi state seems to have resurfaced since the Police Helicopter detailed for aerial surveillance to trap the hoodlums disappeared.
Barely two months that kidnapping activities were reduced to barest minimum by the special police squads deployed to Kogi State by the Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase, a Customary Court of Appeal Judge, Mr. Isaq Momoh Jimoh Usman was on Sunday night Kidnapped by suspected gunmen.
The kidnapped judge was said to have been abducted along Itakpe -Kuroko road in Adavi Local Government while returning back to Lokoja, to resume work.
The Judge was said to have traveled to his country home over the weekend and was returning to Lokoja when the suspected gunmen stopped his car along Okene -Itakpe bye pass.
It was further learnt that the suspected kidnappers killed the police orderly while the driver of the Judge received bullet wounds before the abduction of Justice Isaq Momoh Jimoh Usman who was eventually taken to an unknown destination.
According to a source, the slain Police orderly was said to have been shot dead when he tried to resist the kidnap of his principal.
The driver who received gunshot wound is currently receiving treatment at undisclosed Hospital in Lokoja.
The information Officer of Kogi State Ministry Justice , Mr. Saqeeb Saeed, confirmed the incident.
Efforts to confirm the death of Police orderly proved abortive as the Police Public Officer, Mr. Williams Aya was not responding to his calls.
Two weeks ago the Inspector General of Police, Mr. Solomon Arase deployed a detachment of Special Squad of SARS from Abuja and Helicopter stationed in Lokoja to combat the menace of the kidnappers in Kogi state.
But barely one week after the detachment of special squad of Federal SARS returned to their base, criminal activities of abductors have since resumed in Kogi State again.
