The kidnapping of Kajuru Emir is a farcical joke, according to Kaduna Speaker.


The Speaker of the Kaduna State House of Assembly, Rt. Honourable Yusuf Ibrahim Zailani, has described the kidnapping of the Emir of Kajuru, Adamu Kajuru, and ten others as a farcical joke.

He stated this in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Ibrahim Dahiru Danfulani, and made available to journalists in Kaduna on July 11.

“The news of the kidnapping of the Emir of Kajuru, Adamu Kajuru, and ten people said to be members of his family is a farcical joke that must be condemned,” he said.

“Traditional leaders play an important role in ensuring peaceful coexistence and the stability of our society; thus, the abductors seek to destabilize our society.”

Zailani stated that because of his significant role in society, security personnel should track down the abductors and ensure that all hostages are released unharmed.

He went on to say, “I appeal for calm from all concerned at this time, assuring that our security agencies will act swiftly to ensure their safe return.”

Bandits stormed the Kajuru Emirate in the early hours of today, kidnapping the Emir and 13 of his family members, including two of his grandchildren, in the Kajuru Local Government Area.

The latest incident occurs just six days after 121 students from Bethel Baptist School in the neighboring Chikun Local Government Area were kidnapped.

It was reported that over 200 bandits stormed the emirate, firing gunshots before proceeding to the Emir’s palace and kidnapping him and 13 members of his family.

Three women, two of his grandchildren, three of his aides, and five other people were taken hostage.
