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.

  1. There is no emier in Kajuru. Kajuru is not an Emirate. What is Kaduna state turning into? Islamization is at its peak. Emirate is being crowned secretly to avoid agitations. Wow!
    Well done Governor El-Rufai
