Zagazola revealed that Mshelia’s driver and security escort were also taken by the Boko Haram terrorists and whisked into the Sambisa Forest.

“As they approached a curve in the road between Burutai and Buni-Gari, a group of armed men emerged from the bushes, their weapons blazing and barricaded the road.

“The judge’s vehicle screeched to a halt, then attempted to maneuver its way to escape. In the chaos that ensued, Justice Mshelia’s vehicle was stopped by another team of insurgents,” he said.
