The wife and daughter of a Supreme Court Judge(names withheld), have been abducted by unknown gunmen.
The victims were said to be travelling from Lagos to Edo State, ahead of the judge’s daughter’s wedding ceremony, but were kidnapped on their way. Their driver was also abducted.
They were kidnapped along Benin-Shagamu expressway, while approaching Edo, reports said.
When contacted on telephone, Edo State Police Command Public Relations Officer, Moses Eguavoen, said he was unaware of the development. “I am not aware of that, but let me call the control room and get back to you.”
