KATSINA : Gunmen Abduct Judge Inside A Court


Judge Abducted By Gunmen At Sharia Court In Bauren Zamat, Safana LGA In Katsina State.


Gunmen had abducted a judge at a Sharia Court in Bauren Zakat village in Safana Local Government Area of Katsina State.

According to sources that witnessed the incident, the gunmen invaded the court which had earlier been relocated to Safana for security reasons in Safana, at about 3pm on Tuesday and whisked away the judge Alhaji Husaini Sama’ila. 

Concerns have been raised by Nigerians as to why the judge was present in court despite the fact that Judicial Staff Union of Nigeria ( JUSUN) had embarked on strike on April 6.

The union demanded total compliance with the provisions of sections 81(3), 121(3) and 162(9) of the 1999 Constitution (as amended) on financial autonomy of the judicial arm at the state level.
