Gunmen suspected to be kidnappers on Tuesday evening abducted a serving Judge with the Federal High Court Akure, Justice Abdul Dogo 

The Judge was said to be abducted along with his driver along Ibilo/Isua Akoko axis, a border area between Ondo and Edo states. 

According to a source, Dogo was coming from Abuja when he was stopped by the gunmen and whisked away by the hoodlums.

Tribune Online gathered that the official security orderly of the Judge did not escort him to Abuja when the incident happened but an official of the High Court confirmed the incident, while two of the lawyers who were in his court for the hearing of their cases confirmed the abduction of the Judge.

However, a source close to the family also confirmed that the Judge has been in the captive of the abductors since Tuesday evening, disclosing that the abductors had established negotiation with the wife of the victim.

He said the kidnappers demanded N50m as a ransom to secure the freedom for the Judge and his driver who were held hostage but said the kidnappers did not give room for negotiation. (Tribune Online)
