The Emir of Kajuru in Kaduna State, Adamu Kajuru, and 12 persons said to be his family members have been kidnapped.
The gun-wielding abductors abducted the monarch and his kinsmen from the palace on Saturday night, according to former senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani via a tweet.
In it, Sani said the gunmen had a field day lamenting the spate of abduction in the state.
The tweet: “The Emir of Kajuru, 30 minutes drive from Kaduna and twelve of his family members were forcefully kidnapped yesternight. The bandits operated freely for one hour in the town. In my Kaduna State nowadays, it’s no more about who is safe but who is the next victim.”
