The Kaduna state government has stated that it is collaborating with the Nasarawa state government and security services to liberate Gyet Muade, the paramount ruler of Jaba Jaba Chiefdom, who was abducted by gunmen in Nasarawa on July 27.

The Monarch was kidnapped while on his farm in Gitata, Nasarawa state, which shares a border with Jaba, Kaduna state, according to reports.

On behalf of Governor El-Rufai, Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs Samuel Aruwan led a delegation of government and security officials to the palace of the Kpop Ham in Jaba Chiefdom, promising that the governments of the two states will do everything possible to ensure the swift release of the first-class traditional ruler, especially given his age and deteriorating health.

In recent news, Governor Nasir El-Rufai vented out his disappointment that his administration’s security investments in Kaduna state have not resulted in the defeat or significant degradation of criminals.

El-Rufai said there were 222 deaths in the state in the second quarter of 2021 as a consequence of violent attacks, communal conflicts, and reprisals during the presentation of the Kaduna State Security Incidents Report for the Second Quarter of 2021.

A total of 774 people have been abducted. He stated,

“As Governor of the state, it is a matter of profound regret for me that our considerable investments in security are yet to manifest in the defeat or the considerable degradation of the criminals.

“The data on security incidents in the state during the second quarter of 2021 reflects the real agony of our citizens and communities, their pains and losses, and the fears and anxiety that have created considerable distress.”
