The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Warri branch and Izon Lawyers Forum (ILF), have called for the prosecution of suspects who allegedly kidnapped the Agadagba-elect of Egbema kingdom, Napoleon Egin..
This was contained in separate statements issued by the two groups on December 9 and December 12 respectively.
The NBA Warri branch, in the statement, signed by its chairman, Ogheneovo Okoro, stated that:
“We have been following developments relating to the kidnap of the Agadagba-elect of Egbema kingdom, Napoleon Sekegbekumor Egin, who spent two days in the hands of his abductors before he eventually regained his freedom.”
The statement recalled that the NBA, Warri branch condemned the violent abduction of the legal luminary and consequently called for a thorough investigation into the matter.

However, the ILF alleged that there was a rumour that certain persons were looking for ways to frustrate proper investigation into the matter.
“The ILF will not fold its arms while criminal agents seek to destroy the core fabrics of our society which is law and order.
“We therefore demand justice in this matter and we urge the police to reject any attempt to subvert and/ or obstruct justice in this matter,” the statement added.
