~We’ll give cash to anyone with information that leads to arrest of culprits – police
The newly posted commissioner of police in Adamawa State, Aliyu Adamu Alhaji is experiencing his first baptism of fire as men of the underworld abducted a prominent monarch, the district head of MaFarang, Ardo Mustapha Ardo Ahmadu, hours after he assumed duty in the state.
The monarch who doubles as the Sarkin Noman Adamawa was abducted few hours after he returned to the state from Abuja.
Reports indicated that daredevil gunmen struck the palace of the monarch on Monday around midnight and abducted him after subduing the palace guards who are the local vigilantes.
A resident who does not want his name in print said that the monarch was abducted despite the presence of the palace guards who were trounced by the better equipped marauders.
“The whole town was gripped by tension as gunshots rent the air. The monarch was abducted in the night around 12 midnight on Monday despite the presence of the palace guards,” he said.
