Gyet Maude, the Traditional Ruler of Jaba Chiefdom in Kaduna state’s Jaba local government area, has been kidnapped by gunmen suspected of being kidnappers.
Anthony Maude, the monarch’s brother, confirmed the kidnapping over the phone to reporters.
He said the victim was kidnapped on his property in Gitata, Nasarawa State.
The village is located on the state line between Kaduna and Nasarawa.
It is unclear whether the royal father, who is over 80 years old, traveled to the property alone or with his security detail.
As of the time of publication, neither the Kaduna State government nor the police authorities had confirmed the event.
