Kaduna govt declares 24-hour curfew over death of traditional ruler


The Kaduna State Government has reinstated a 24-hour curfew on Kaduna metropolis and environs, Kasuwan Magani, Kajuru, Kateri and Kachia, following the killing of traditional ruler His Royal Highness (HRH), Agom Adara by the kidnappers.


Our correspondent gathered that despite payment of N10 million demanded by the kidnappers, the Royal Highness was killed .


The curfew is effective from 11am today, Friday, 26th October 2018 and will remain in force until further notice.


This was contained in a statement issued by Senior Special Assistant (SSA), media and publicity to the governor, Samuel Arunwa who said, the curfew is a necessary step to help maintain peace as the state mourns the death of HRH Agom Adara, who was killed in the early hours of today by the criminals who abducted him last week.


The Kaduna State Government called for calm in all communities in the state saying that the criminal elements who perpetrated this crime should not be allowed to divide us.


The statement added, “This is a struggle between good, decent, law-abiding people trying to uphold the peace and criminals who want to divide and destroy. It is not a struggle between religious or ethnic groups. Let no criminal find succour in faith or tribe.


“Let us unite against every criminal activity. Let us stand together as human beings who have a right to live in peace.”
