Boko Haram Abduct High court Judge, Wife, 2 Others In Borno

A High Court Judge, Justice Haruna Mshelia, his wife, driver and orderly were abducted by the Boko Haram terrorists along Biu to Maiduguri road on Monday, June 24, 2024.

Sources said, Justice Mshelia who is working with Borno State High Court in Maiduguri was travelling in his vehicle, accompanied by his driver, a security escort and his wife.

As they approached a curve on the road between Buratai and Buni-gari, a group of armed men emerged from the bush and barricaded the road.
The judge’s vehicle screeched to a halt, then attempted to manoeuvre its way to escape.

Unfortunately, in the chaos that ensued, Justice Mshelia’s vehicle was stopped by another team of insurgents, taken hostage and later whisked into Sambisa Forest.

Recall that Damaturu- Buni Yadi -Buratai- Biu 120kms road has remained a death trap for many years, considering it’s deplorable condition faced by motorists and passengers, as it is the only route that links over five local government areas of Southern Borno (Biu, Hawul, Bayo, Shani, Kwaya Kusar etc) to Maiduguri, the state capital due to inability to reopen the Maiduguri-Damboa-Biu road.
