Uyo foremost judge, Justice Okon Okon today escaped death by a whisker after some dreaded kidnappers he sentenced to death attacked him in court premises in Uyo.

Shortly after the sentencing hearing, the convicts ganged up and destroyed the window of the courtroom located along Ikot Ekpene Road, causing lawyers and litigants to scamper for safety.

The pandemonium went on for about 60 minutes as the convicts refused to leave the court.

It took the intervention of soldiers and policemen to restore order in the court premises.

The convicts were subsequently dragged to a waiting prison van.

    There is no mercy for them because no judge will approve their appeal application

    The trouble lasted for up to sixty minutes…a whole hour? I imagine it would feel like sixty days for the people under siege. Where were the security people who were expected to protect the judge and the entire premises? This is a serious lapse that needs to be addressed and The protection should not be limited to the court premises but extended to homes of judges and magistrates.
    This is very disturbing development indeed.

    @Big Aunty Koks you are very correct. The judges and lawyers should receive round the clock protection 24/7. There should be no mercy for kidnappers and ritualists. Death by execution or hanging should be the answer.

    Very strange…..but let them investigate very well, there might be connection between the kidnappers and judge or lawyers….it seems to be breach of trust made in darkness, some lawyers and judges in Nigeria can never be trusted.

      @Tim are you trying to say that ritualism in this case killing another human being in the hope that money will fall from somewhere and land on your house or kidnapping where in many cases the victims are killed is ok? Check the case of Evans the kidnapper who after collecting ransome still go ahead to kill his victims. In your own eyes this is ok. These people will not change. They should wait and and allow the appeal process to take its course. By attacking the judge they have worsened their situation.
