BREAKING: Traditional Ruler Killed In Kaduna (24-Hours Curfew Reinstated)


The Agom Adara, His Royal Highness Maiwada Galadima, has been murdered.

The traditional ruler, who has been in captivity for close to one week, was reported murdered on Thursday night by his captors.
SaharaReporters gathered that he was killed at Katari village, along Kaduna-Abuja road, after a ransom of N10 million was paid.

A source in Rimau village, who spoke to SaharaReporters, said the abductors kidnapped the deceased last week Friday along Kaduna-Kachia road, alongside his wife and driver.

The wife and driver were released two days afterwards, but N10 million was demanded as ransom for the release of the traditional ruler.

The source, however, could not confirm if the kidnappers killed him before or after the ransom was paid.

Galadima hails from Rimau, but was resident in Kachia. The village has been thrown into confusion and mourning.

When contacted on phone to confirm the report, the Police Public Relations Officer, Yakubu Sabo Abubakar, promised to call back, but had not done so as of the time of filing this report.


However the Kaduna State government has reinstated a 24-hours curfew on Kaduna metropolis and environs, Kaswan Magani, Kajuru, Kateri and  Kachia. The curfew takes effectiveness from 11am  today Friday 26th October 2018.
 
Samuel Aruwan  (Senior Assistant to the Governor on Media and publicity) in a statement on the official facebook page of the State Government  made it known that,

"This is a necessary step to help maintain peace as we mourn the death of HRH. Agom Adara, who we lost in the early hours of today to the criminals who abducted him last week"

The Kaduna State Government however calls for calmness in all the communities of the state.
