Suspected kidnappers of Kogi State High Court judge are demanding N150 million ransom.

National Mirror gathered that the kidnappers contacted family of the judge yesterday and demanded for N150 million ransom to effect the release of Justice Samuel Obayomi Olatimehin.

Justice Olatimehin, who is resident judge of Ebogogo High Court in Adavi Local Government Area of Kogi State, was kidnapped at gunpoint on Monday while on his way to office.

His police orderly, Corporal Usman Musa, was shot dead during the operation.

Meanwhile, Chief Judge of the state, Justice Nasir Ajanah, said he was not aware of any ransom demand.

However, efforts to confirm the demand for ransom from the police proved abortive as phone calls put across to Police Public Relations Officer, Collins Adebayo, did not yield any fruit at the time of filing the report.
