The Kaduna state police command has launched a man hunt for the killers of the Traditional ruler of Numana Chiefdom in Sanga Local Government Area of Kaduna State, GAMBO MAKAMA and his wife.
It was alleged that they were killed by gunmen suspected to be herdsmen in a fresh attack on the community.
Spokesman for the Kaduna State Police Command, MUKTAR ALIYU said the gunmen set the traditional ruler’s house and his vehicle ablaze and thereafter escaped into the bush before the arrival of policemen.
The fresh attack which occurred in the early hours of the New Year is coming barely five days after two communities in Jema’a Local Government Area were also attacked by gunmen in which no fewer than 11 people were killed.
Spokesman to Kaduna state government, SAMUEL ARUWAN said that the late Etum Numana was a peacemaker who was committed to peace and development in his chiefdom.
ARUWAN further said the government had directed the security agencies to investigate the criminal incident as well as to bring the assailants to justice.
