The kidnapped Paramount ruler of Adara Chiefdom in Kachia Local Government Area of Kaduna State, Agom Adara, Dr Maiwada Galadima has been killed.

Galadima's corpse was found along Kaduna-Abuja road Thursday (October 25th) evening.

The Kaduna traditional ruler had been kidnapped last week

It would be recalled that the paramount ruler and his wife were kidnapped along Kaduna/Kachia road at gun point about a week ago.

In the process, the police orderly to the paramount ruler, another security guard popularly known as Dogari and two others were killed before the paramount ruler and his wife were whisked to an unknown destination.

A day after, the wife to the Paramount ruler was released by the abductors, who collected ransom which was placed on the ruler only for his corpse to be found along Kaduna-Abuja road.
