The traditional father of Adara Nation in Kachia local government area of Kaduna state, stayed a week in kidnappers’ den before his body was found at Kateri, a Chikun community located along Kaduna-Abuja highway on October 26, the development that shut down social and economic activities of the state for more than a week.
However, the Department of State Security (DSS) had earlier this week paraded six suspected kidnappers and murderers of the monarch, the development many believed would laid the agitations to rest.
