BENIN, Nigeria, May 12 (UPI) -- The wife and daughter of Nigerian Supreme Court Justice Bode Rhodes Vivour were abducted along with their driver, police said.

The two women were traveling Friday to Benin City for a wedding when the alleged kidnappers stopped them on the Benin/Ore Expressway, the Nigerian Tribune reported Sunday.

Whether the abductors have contacted the family about a possible ransom or demands was not reported.

Vivour's son, Rotimi, was kidnapped Sept. 3 in Lagos for a $190,000 ransom. Rotimi was let go after the family allegedly paid the ransom, although police took credit for the release, the Tribune said.
