Locus in quo: Villagers allegedly attack Gombe judge, Court Staff, Lawyer over Land dispute

Several individuals have reportedly been attacked by unidentified persons in Degri, Balanga Local Government Area of Gombe State.

The victims, who were attacked on Saturday, include a judge of the Upper Area Court III, Ayuba Buba-Dalas, Barr. Usman Yahya, and a court staff.

It was gathered that the court routinely conducts physical assessments to determine the cause of conflicts related to land disputes.

As part of this process, Buba-Dalas embarked on a tour to measure the land and determine the rights of the parties involved.

An eyewitness, who requested anonymity, recounted the ordeal of the trio and stated that they were attacked by villagers as soon as the team was spotted.

According to the source, “They went to a locus in Degri, Balanga LGA to ascertain the true owner of the land. It was then that people in the village attacked them with weapons.”

The Nigerian Bar Association, Gombe State branch, confirmed the incident through its Publicity Secretary, Bashir Abdullahi.

Abdullahi’s statement read in part, “Good morning distinguished learned silks, seniors and colleagues. This is to notify the esteemed members of the Jewel Bar that there will be a visit to His Honour, Ayuba Buba-Dalas (UAC III JUDGE), and Usman Yahya Esq., over a sad incident that happened to them yesterday while on a visit to locus at Degri.”
