A Delta High Court abducted nine days ago has been released by his captors.
Justice Marcel Okoh was released on Wednesday night, according to police sources.

Justice Okoh was kidnapped after he was trailed from Umunede, Ika North East local government area and abducted at Orhia-Abraka, Ethiope East LGA.

The Nation learnt that the judge was among those newly sworn-in by the state chief judge.
Delta Police Command image-maker, DSP Charles Muka, said the driver of the judge is in police custody.
Kidnapping of high profile victims have increased in the state with the recent kidnap of ex-Super Eagles midfielder Christian Obodo.

Others include son of the Secretary to the Delta State Government, Ovuozorie Macaulay.
Also lawmakers and top politicians have not been spared, including top government functionaries.
In a related development, two persons allegedly implicated in the abduction of an Asaba- based hotelier have been arrested by security operatives.

The victim Nduka Osadebay was kidnapped five months ago in his hotel premises.
Efforts by the Delta Police Command to locate him have proved abortive.
