The mysterious disappearance of the MOE employee provoked public outcry in the Zahn region with some pointing accusing fingers at Magistrate Victoria Gbalazeh of the Duo magisterial court who is on record for subjecting citizens to inhumane treatment whenever lawsuit is filed against them.
When citizens in the area took up the matter with the supreme Court, Magistrate Gbalazeh was asked to recuse herself while the high court launches investigation into circumstances surrounding the mysterious disappearance of the classroom teacher and the reported ill-treatment of citizens by her.
