ISIS: Alert over whereabouts of ex CJN Uwais’ son



Emerging reports indicate that the son of a retired Supreme Court Justice and former Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) Justice Muhammadu Lawal Uwais, may have joined the terrorist group, Islamic State of Syria and Irag (ISIS).

According to the San Francisco based THEWILL, which quoted intelligence sources, the 41-year old of the former CJN left Nigeria few weeks back with his two wives and children to join forces with the notorious ISIS.

Already Nigerian security agents are also reported to be working frantically to track his whereabouts.

One of the wives a school principal, and the other also a school administrator both left with their husband without telling their parents.

It was gathered that one of the wives reportedly told her parents she was going to Dubai for two weeks with her husband, but no one has heard from them since.

Contacted for his comments, the respected jurist said he had no comments to make on the development, as he neither confirmed nor denied the speculations.

If proven to be true, this would be the second time a member of a Nigerian elitist family would be linked to a foreign terrorist group.

The first was the notorious underwear bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a member of Al-Qaeda, who is presently serving a life sentence without parole in the United States, who is the youngest son of Katsina-born Alhaji Umaru Mutallab, a wealthy Nigerian banker and businessman, who had also served as a federal minister in the 70s.
