Armed bandits have kidnapped the Emir of Kajuru and 13 of his family members in a late night raid, SAHELIAN TIMES reports.
The 85 year old 2nd class Emir was kidnapped alongside three women, two of his grand children, 3 of his aides and 5 others.
One of the Emir’s cabinet members who pleaded for anonymity, confirmed the attack.
It was reported that just a day before the incident, the Emir summoned a security meeting; about a potential ploy to kidnap him but unfortunately, the security agents didn’t act on it.
The Kajuru emirate is about 30 minutes away from Kaduna town.
