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.
