The Incident occurred along the Itakpe-Kuroko Road on Sunday evening while the judge was returning to Lokoja from his country home.
The Judge was said to have travelled to his country home at the weekend and was returning to Lokoja when the suspected gunmen stopped his car along the Okene-Itakpe bypass in Okehi Local Government Area of Kogi State.
