The traditional ruler was whisked away by his abductors who stormed his palace in Kwarra, the headquarters of Farin Ruwa development area in Wamba LGA of the state around 7:30pm on Monday.
An eyewitness told our correspondent that the kidnappers in their large number stormed the Mosque within the palace, where they over powered the policemen attached to the monarch and ordered all the security to lie face down and they made away with him.
“The gunmen came in their large number on foot shortly after the traditional ruler and some of his subjects just finished the Isha (nighttime) prayer around 7:30pm and ordered the security to lie down and they siezed the monarch and went away with him to unknown destination” the source said.
