Members of the Nigeria Bar Association (NBA) Makurdi Branch have resolved to boycott appearances in courts until one of their members, Barr. Terna Jirgba, who was arrested or abducted by heavily armed gunmen, is released from detention.

The NBA, Makurdi Branch expressed the worries that more than forty-eight hours after the whisking away of their member by unknown gunmen believed to be security agents, no security agency has launched an investigation to the matter, even though reports have been made to them.

A statement signed by the branch chairman, Barr. Emmanuel Agbakor in Makurdi, a copy of which was made available to The Nation explained that Barr. Jirgba, as he is known by members of NBA, is a private legal practitioner in the law office of Iorwase Ahile & Co, Old Oturkpo Road, Makurdi and is a committed member of the association and was not known to have any personal disagreement with anybody.

The statement therefore condemned the unlawful arrest or abduction of Barr. Jirgba and notified Mr. President and the entirety of the Nigerian Bar of the unfortunate incident, for urgent necessary action to rescue him unhurt
