Gunmen had intercepted the convoy of the royal father at Maikyali village along Kaduna-Kachia Road on October 19 and opened fire on the vehicles which forced them to come to a halt.

The traditional ruler’s wife, however, regained her freedom two days after, but he was held hostage by the abductors who demanded a ransom from his family.

About a week later, the state government announced that the monarch had been killed.

The Senior Special Assistant to the governor on Media and Publicity, Mr Samuel Aruwan, made the announcement in a statement he issued on October 26.

According to the statement, the body of the traditional ruler was found near a bush at Kateri area along the Kaduna-Abuja highway in the early hours of Friday.
