365Daily – Gunmen suspected to be bandits have abducted Gyet Maude, the traditional ruler of the Jaba chiefdom in Jaba Local Government Area of Kaduna State on Monday.
It was gathered that the 80 years old first- class monarch was abducted while on his farm located on Gitata, a border town between Kaduna and Nasarawa states.
The incident is coming barely two weeks after bandits abducted the 85-year-old emir of Kajuru, Alhassan Adamu, alongside 13 other members of his family.
However, in less than 24 hours, Adamu regained his freedom from his abductors while other members of the family were held back by the kidnappers.
A family member of the monarch who said he was not authorised to speak on the issue, confirmed the incident to journalists in the state capital.
According to the state Command’s Public Relations Officer, ASP Mohammed Jalige, the command had contacted its Nasarawa counterpart over the matter for further details.
