Remains of slain Kaduna monarch buried

Late Agom Adara of Adara Chiefdom, Mr Maiwada Galadima in Kachia Local Government Area of Kaduna State has been laid to rest at Kachia.

It would be recalled that four persons including a policeman were killed along Kaduna/Kachia road by alleged abductors Friday October 19 before taking away the monarch, his wife and driver.

The late monarch was killed by his abductors and his body was found along Katari Road on Thursday, Oct. 26.

In a sermon during the funeral mass at St John’s Catholic Church, Archbishop of Kaduna Diocese, Mr Mathew Ndagoso, enjoined Christians to keep their faith alive despite the trying moment.

He lamented the poor security measures in the country where Nigerians are no longer secure, adding, “government must be willing to adopt holistic approach in fighting insecurity in the country rather than the blame game for the past three and half years”.

The cleric charged Christians to remain peaceful and accept the death of the paramount ruler in good faith.

He said the late monarch was a simple, peaceful and committed Christian whose exemplary life is worthy of emulation.

Goodwill messages came from prominent sons of Southern Kaduna including Mr Danjuma La’ah (PDP-Kaduna South), former CBN Deputy Governor, Mr Obadiah Mailafiya; and Kaduna State Commissioner of Agriculture, Mr Daniel Manzo.

The occasion attracted top government officials, politicians and traditional rulers.
