Security operatives have arrested some suspects who were said to have kidnapped the traditional ruler of Adara Chiefdom in Kachia Local Government Area of Kaduna State, Chief Maiwada Galadima. 

The six suspects were paraded on Wednesday at the state headquarters of the Department of State Security Services (DSS)

The state Director of the DSS, Mahmood Ningi who briefed journalists, said the suspects were tracked and arrested at different locations in Igabi, Soba, Kachia and Jos in Plateau State.

Gunmen had intercepted the convoy of the royal father at Maikyali village along Kaduna-Kachia Road on October 19 and opened fire on the vehicles which forced them to come to a halt.

During the operation, the traditional ruler’s police orderly and three others in his convoy were shot dead by the gunmen who later took him and his wife away to an unknown location.

The traditional ruler’s wife, however, regained her freedom two days after, but he was held hostage by the abductors who demanded a ransom from his family.

About a week later, the state government announced that the monarch had been killed.

The Senior Special Assistant to the governor on Media and Publicity, Mr Samuel Aruwan, made the announcement in a statement he issued on October 26.

According to the statement, the body of the traditional ruler was found near a bush at Kateri area along the Kaduna-Abuja highway in the early hours of Friday.
