Kidnapped Federal High Court Judge Freed

A judge of the Federal High Court, Akure, Justice Abdul Dogo, who was kidnapped last Tuesday, has regained freedom.

According to The Nation, Justice Dogo was set free at about 2am on Saturday.

The judge was abducted by unknown gunmen while returning to Akure from Abuja.

The circumstances of his release are unclear at the moment.

It is not known whether a ransom was paid.

But it was reported last week that the kidnappers demanded a N50 million ransom.

It was also gathered that the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) deployed the head of the IGP Intelligence Response Team, Abba Kiyari, to Akure over the incident.
