A 24-hour curfew has been reinstated in the Nigerian State of Kaduna from Friday following the death of a prominent traditional chief, who was abducted during communal violence last week.
Maiwada Raphael Galadima, the Agom Adara ,the traditional leader of the Adara people was abducted last Friday after visiting the town of Kasuwan Magani, which had just witnessed clashes between Muslim and Christian youths at its market.
The unrest in Kasuwan Magani led to deadly violence elsewhere in the state, which is why a curfew was initially imposed.
An official from a local Adara group who went to identify the chief’s body at a hospital in Kaduna said kidnappers had collected a ransom and then killed him.
The Kaduna state government said the “criminal elements who perpetrated this crime should not be allowed to divide the people.
