Heavily armed men suspected to be kidnappers have again kidnapped a traditional ruler in Taraba State.
The traditional ruler, Sani Suleiman Duna, was kidnapped around 1 am on Friday alongside his two wives and six children.
The gunmen were said to have taken over the monarch’s palace after they had successfully scared the community’s residents with sporadic gunshots.
A palace guard, who craved anonymity, confirmed the incident to our correspondent.
Aligning his weight to that of the palace guard, a resident of the community who gave his name as Usmanu said, “our sleep was disrupted by the gunshots that were being fired in the air by the hoodlums who invaded our community.”
