You may not believe it, but it is true. Kidnappers in Delta State have gone a notch higher by writing to a High Court judge threatening to abduct her if she refused to pay N20 million ransom.
Worse still, since September when they sent their threat letter to Justice Flora Azinge of Otor-Udu High Court, Otor-Udu, they have forced her to abandon the court room where many cases are pending for adjudication and litigants lamenting.
As if that ugly twist is not enough, a police orderly working with her is being implicated in the kidnap threat saga.She, at first, did not take the threat serious until the would-be kidnappers telephoned her and disclosed to her that some other judges had paid.
To further frighten her, they told her they were monitoring her every move, including the house chores she was involved in at the moment the telephone conversation was going on.
