Gunmen at the early hours of Monday kidnapped a Benue lawyer, Terfa Jirgba, and his two relatives.
It was gathered that gunmen numbering 22 stormed the residence of the popular Benue lawyer, located at 3, Badagry Street, off Katsina-ala , Makurdi, in six Toyota Hilux vehicles and whisked the lawyer away, together with two of his relatives.
The Chairman, Nigerian Bar Association, Makurdi Branch, Barrister Emmanuel Agbaku, described the incident as very unfortunate.
Agbaku said, “in the wee hours of Monday, 8th August, 2016, some unidentified heavily armed operatives numbering about 20 in 6 Hilux vans stormed the premises of Bar. Jirgba located at Badagry street, close to St. Peters Catholic Church, High Level, Makurdi.”
“The armed men whisked him and two of his relations away to an unknown destination. Since then, efforts made by the Bar and other members of his family to establish contact with our colleague proved abortive,” he added.
He further called on the security agencies to put on hands on deck for the freedom of the victims.
