After 15 days in captivity, bandits free abducted Kaduna judge’s children

Story from Uji A. ILIYASU

Bandits in Kaduna have released the abducted children of a female Judge, Janet Galadima, after 15 days in captivity.

The chairman of Kaduna State branch of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Barr. Godwin Ochai, confirmed their release to newsmen on Tuesday.

Recall that the bandits had initially kidnapped the judge manning the Customary Court, Sabo, in Kaduna, Janet Galadima, and her four children on 23 June 2024.

The Kaduna State Police Command’s spokesperson, ASP Mansir Hassan, had earlier confirmed that the hoodlums killed the 14-year-old eldest son of the judge, Victor, over inability to pay ransom.

The bandits released the judge a few days after her first son was killed, leaving behind her three children in captivity.
