The video featured in the press report is said to have been recorded by a witness at the scene of the incident. When narrating to the press, the witness said;

"The judge was in a black SUV with registration number HC 72 FJ, which belonged to the federal high court.

"He was inside the vehicle with his driver when the gunmen crossed the road and shot sporadically into the air.

"The driver of the judge didn't stop and the gunmen shot at the vehicle. There was another set of gunmen who blocked them as the driver continued driving that eventually captured the judge and his driver.

"Firstly, they beat the driver and later the judge before they dragged them into a bush.

"In fact, there is one space bus driving on the same road and they abducted about four other persons in the vehicle while they robbed the passengers.

"It was some group of soldiers that came to our rescue after the gunmen had escaped into the bush with their victims."

As at the time of writing this report, sources claim that the Kidnappers are requesting for a ₦50 million ransom even though the witness in the video claimed that all of the passengers in the second bus were also robbed of their valuables.
