The traditional ruler of Adara in Kaduna state who was kidnapped with his wife has been brutally murdered.  The paramount ruler of the Adara, the Agwom Adara, Mr. Maiwada Raphael Galadima who was abducted last Friday with his wife has been killed. The traditional ruler is believed to have been killed on Thursday and his body dumped where it was found and taken to St. Gerald Catholic Hospital in Kaduna early Friday morning.
 
One of the officials of Adara Development Association who went to identify the body at the St. Gerald Catholic Hospital in Kakuri, Kaduna, said the late Agom was shot twice in the head as there were bullet wounds piercing through his ears and neck.
 
He said the kidnappers collected an undisclosed amount of money as ransom before killing the traditional ruler. The police public relations officer, Yakubu Sabo did not pick his calls when our correspondent tried to reach him.
 
The Agom Adara was abducted last week on his way to his palace in Kachia after attending an official function with the governor when his convoy was intercepted by the bandits who killed his police orderly and three other palace guards.
 
Reports of his killing have created tension in Kachia as youths have gathered around the palace to receive official confirmation of the death. Tension has started mounting in Kaduna as people have started running back to their houses out of fear.
 
There is also a report of the fresh crisis in Sabon Tasha with fears that the Kaduna state government might be forced to declare another round of curfew.

May the Soul of His Royal Majesty Rest In Peace. Methinks commonsense should be the in thing in the Kaduna top hierarchy. In the unstable situation in that Kada State, it should have occurred to the Authority that any hoodlum should know that a lot of "Welfare" usually follows some Dignitaries returning from a tete a tete with their pint size Governor. Vulnerable personalities like this His Royal Majesty, should have been escorted by at least a patrol vehicle of the State's Operation Yaki, instead of one pitiful police corporal carrying one AK 47.
