Kidnapped Delta State Judge,N40million ransom demanded
ABDUCTORS of Delta High Court Judge, Justice Marcel Okoh, have established contact with the family of the judge.
Although both police and the family kept sealed lips about the details of discussions since the kidnappers established contact, it was reliably gathered that they were asking for N40 million as ransom.
Okoh, a former Director of Public Prosecution, DPP, but was sworn in as a judge in June along five other newly appointed judges in Delta State, was kidnapped on Monday on his way to his duty post in Warri.
The kidnappers held on until Friday when they established contact. Workers of Delta State Ministry of Justice from where he was elevated to the position of a High Court Judge, had a special prayer session that same Monday the news broke, calling for God’s intervention for his release.
Also, the Asaba branch of the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, under the leadership of Mr. Chukwuma Oseyenim, at an emergency meeting on Thursday, resolved “to boycott all court proceedings until Justice M.C. Okoh is released”.
