Confirming the incident in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria, Gambo said:

“Yes, it is true that the judge, Hussaini Samaila has been abducted while the courts are on strike. The court had stopped sitting in that area for long. 

“The judge went to the area alone to take something in the court without a court orderly or police escort, knowing fully the insecurity challenges in that area.

“Even if he has to go there, he should have asked for security cover and we would have given him considering his position.

“We are investigating the issue to find out the reality, and why he should put himself in such danger,” he said.
