The Inspector General of Police, (IGP) Ibrahim Idris has ordered his Intelligence Response Team(IRT), led by a Deputy Commissioner of Police, DCP Abba Kyari to fish out the killers of the traditional ruler of Adara community in Kaduna, Dr. Maiwada Galadima.

Galadima, a first class monarch was gruesomely murdered, after he was kidnapped alongside his wife and several others by a gang of armed men, on  the Kachia- Kaduna Highway.

A crack team of IRT operatives was subsequently deployed  to Kachia, Katari and Brinin Gwari areas of Kaduna State, to track down the kidnappers who are suspected to be members of a notorious gang of herdsmen  terrorizing residents  of  Kaduna and Zamfara States.

The IGP was said to have been shocked to hear that  the traditional  ruler was murdered after spending one week in captivity and his people paying a ransom of N10million.

It was gathered that  after the ransom was paid, the kidnappers took  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 fringe of  a forest at Katari  and they opened fire on him.

Another victim who tried to escape was shot on the foot before they escaped back into the forest.

However  the sound of the shootings  attracted residents of a small village in the  area and they found the paramount ruler  in a pool of blood.
