Weeks after Dr. Maiwada Galadima, a first class traditional ruler of Adara Chiefdom in Kaduna State was gruesomely murdered, after he was kidnapped alongside his wife and several others by a gang of armed men who attacked him along the Kachia- Kaduna highway, the police high command in Abuja, the suspected killers have been arrested.
The suspected hoodlums were paraded today by the Department of State Services (DSS)..
The paramount ruler was murdered, after spending one week in captivity and a ransom of N10million was paid to the kidnappers.
It was reported that after a N10 million ransom was paid, the kidnappers brought out the 64-year-old traditional ruler and some other people who they kidnapped alongside him, excluding his wife, Victoria, who they had released three days before then, to the entrance of a forest within Katari area of the state, and opened fire on him killing him on the spot.
Another victim who tried to escape was also shot on the foot before they escaped into the forest.
It was learned that the sound of the gunshot attracted residents of a small village within the Katari area and they found the paramount ruler lying in a pool of blood.
Eight persons including the traditional ruler lost their lives during the attack.
