Traditional ruler and his wife murdered on New Year day in Southern Kaduna

The government of Kaduna state has condemned the killing of the Etum Numana in Sanga Local Government Area, Alhaji Gambo Makama, and his wife in the early hours of Monday, January 1, 2018, by some unknown assassins.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Samuel Aruwan, the senior special assistant on media and publicity to the governor, said the late Etum Numana was a peacemaker who was committed to peace and development in his chiefdom.

“The government commiserates with the immediate family of the royal father and his wife, the people of Numana Chiefdom and the entire Sanga Local Government Area.

“The government condemns this double murder that was a calculated threat to peace, and a most unfortunate attempt to introduce into the New Year a pattern of criminality that needlessly threatens the right of citizens to security, life and liberty," he said.

Aruwan appealed to anyone with useful information on the murder to report such to the relevant security agencies and assured them that the information will be treated with utmost confidentiality.

The report quoted him as saying the government had directed the security agencies to investigate the criminal incident as well as to bring the assailants to justice.

It said the governor appealed to the people of Numana Chiefdom to remain calm and to support the security agencies as they continued to investigate the crime which he said had been threatening the hard-won peace across the Southern Kaduna area of the state.

Reports earlier said that unknown gunmen killed Dr Gambo Makama and his wife. The report quoted Leadership as stating that the couple were killed at their residence by unknown gunmen in the early hours of Monday, January 1.

Chairman of the Sanga local government Area, Abdulmumin Yakubu Ashafa confirmed the murder to the newspaper.
