Judges’ kidnap: I’m vindicated – Lori-Ogbebor


ITSEKIRI leader, Chief Rita Lori-Ogbebor, has said she had been vindicated on her position over the alleged abduction of judges in Delta State.

Ogbebor had alleged that the case of kidnapping of judges, who were about to deliver vital judgment in the state, was suspicious.

It will be recalled that Vanguard had earlier reported that Justice Flora Azinge of the state High Court sitting in Otor-Udu, Delta State, was unable to sit for two months because kidnappers had asked her to pay a ransom of N20 million or she would be abducted.

Ogbebor noted that the kidnappers were reported to have told the judge that “many of her colleagues had paid similar monies, and that if she failed to comply, her life would be in danger,” and thus frightening the woman and preventing her from going to her court for two months.
