Kidnappers of the paramount ruler of Jaba Chiefdom, Kpop Ham, Dr Danladi Gyet Maude, in Jaba Local Government Area of Kaduna State, are asking for a ransom of N100million before he could be released.
The 83-year-old monarch was abducted on his farm in neighbouring Nasarawa state on Monday, and was taken to an unknown destination.
A source from the Chiefdom told journalists on Tuesday, that the abductors had called the royal family on phone, asking for a N100 million ransom before they would release the first-class Chief.
The source said the abductors did not go with the chief’s driver and a guard who were with Kpop Ham when they struck.
The Jaba Chiefdom shares border with the Gitata community in Nasarawa state where the chief’s farm was located.
