DSS Arrests Six Over Killing Of Kaduna Monarch



Six persons suspected to have been involved in the killing of the traditional ruler of Adara chiefdom in Kaduna State, Chief Maiwada Galadima, have been arrested by the Department of State Security Services (DSS).

The suspects were paraded on Wednesday at the state headquarters of the DSS in Kaduna.

According to the DSS, the suspects were tracked and arrested at different locations in Igabi, Soba, Kachia and Jos in Plateau State.

Galadima, his wife and driver were abducted on Friday, October 19, after some unknown gunmen intercepted their convoy along Kaduna-Kachia Road and opened fire on the vehicles, which forced them to submit to the abductors.

The wife and driver were later released, but the monarch was killed a week after, and his body dumped by the roadside at Kateri village, on Kaduna-Abuja highway.

“The Kaduna State Government extends its condolences to the family of this revered leader and to people of the chiefdom he led with dedication and commitment,” the state government said in a statement signed by Governor Nasir El-Rufai’s media aide, Samuel Aruwan.
