Bandits release Kaduna judge without children, demand N150m ransom

Written by on July 4, 2024

Bandits have released the Kaduna judge, Janet Gimba, who was abducted along with her four children on Sunday.

However,  the judge’s husband, Dr. Musa Gimba who confirmed the release, said the children are still being held by the bandits.

Gimba, a medical doctor said the bandits are demanding N150 million ransom for the release of the remaining children within three days while threatening to kill them for failure to pay the money.

The Kaduna State Police Command’s Public Relations Officer, Mansir Hassan ASP, said the hoodlums killed the 14-year-old eldest son of the judge, Victor.

The abductors, reported to have been about 15, took their captives hostage and demanded a huge sum as ransom.

“On Tuesday, July 2, 2024, the terrorists shot dead the 14-year-old first son of the judge when the ransom demanded could not be obtained,” Ballason, a human rights lawyer, had said.

Ballason had described the murder of Victor, the 14-year-old son of the Judge as “grisly and blood-curdling”, stating that no parent deserved the horror of watching their child being killed in such cold, callous manner.

She had called on the Nigerian security agencies, the Governor of Kaduna state, the Nigeria Bar Association and the Judiciary to rise to the urgency of the moment for the protection of the lives of the judge and her children and to ensure justice was served.
