President Buhari is currently in Kaduna to intervene in the different religious/communal crisis, that has crippled activities in the state.
Traditional and religious leaders as well as stakeholders in the state are present in the meeting, and it is expected that a lasting solution to the crisis will be reached.
We reported that Kaduna state has witnessed renewed crisis as a result of the gruesome murder of the paramount ruler of the Adara, the Agom Adara, Dr Maiwada Galadima, by kidnappers. The traditional ruler was said to had been shot “immediately the ransom was delivered to the kidnappers” at a point that they chose.
It was learnt that “Even the courier of the ransom money could not understand why the kidnappers shot the paramount ruler who was already on the threshold of freedom.” Residents said the Chief was killed, and his corpse moved to Katari, about 85 kilometres between Abuja and Kaduna, before the kidnappers contacted the family, informing them where to pick the corpse.
It was not clear what the exact ransom paid was, but it was gathered that the money was “substantial.” The development later triggered fresh violence despite security deployments and curfew declared in the state.
