Kaduna Judge's Children Reunited with Parents After Kidnap Ordeal

In a heart-wrenching saga of abduction and loss, the children of Judge Janet Gimba from Kaduna have finally been reunited with their parents following a daring rescue operation by security forces. The harrowing ordeal began on June 23 when armed bandits stormed the family's residence, kidnapping Judge Gimba and her four children.


Tragically, the bandits took the life of the couple's eldest son when their father was unable to meet their exorbitant ransom demands. After holding Judge Gimba captive for weeks, the bandits released her on Sunday, July 7, but not without demanding N150 million for the safe return of her three surviving children, giving a three-day ultimatum.


In a statement issued on Wednesday, July 10, Dr. Musa Gimba, the judge's husband, expressed both relief and sorrow as he recounted the family's traumatic experience. He confirmed the joyful reunion with their three rescued sons on Tuesday, July 9, while mourning the loss of their eldest child, who was tragically killed by the kidnappers before their mother's release.


Dr. Gimba praised the exceptional professionalism and bravery displayed by security forces during the successful rescue operation. He specifically acknowledged the Office of the National Security Adviser (NSA) for leading the meticulous planning and coordination that ultimately secured the children's freedom.


"While we continue to mourn the untimely loss of our eldest son, we are immensely grateful to God for reuniting us with our surviving children," Dr. Gimba stated. "This ordeal has been a harrowing experience that we would not wish upon anyone. We extend our heartfelt thanks to all those who played crucial roles in bringing our children back to safety."


Dr. Gimba expressed gratitude to several individuals and groups, including NSA Nuhu Ribadu and his office, Chief of Defence Staff Gen. Christopher Musa, and various security forces such as the Nigerian Army Garrison Commander in Kaduna State, the Department of Security Services, Kaduna State, the Nigerian Police Force, Kaduna State Command, Military Intelligence, and the National Intelligence Agency. He also acknowledged the support of professional bodies, NGOs, religious organizations, and the media for their roles in the rescue operation.


The Gimba family's ordeal underscores the ongoing security challenges faced by many in Nigeria and highlights the resilience and dedication of security forces and community support in times of crisis.
