Abductors of the Emir of Kajuru, Alhassan Adamu, have demanded a ransom of N200 million to secure his release.
The spokesperson of the Kajuru Emirate Council, Dahiru Abubakar, disclosed this on Monday, according to a report by Channels.
The Kaduna monarch was earlier kidnapped by bandits in the early hours of Sunday in Kajuru town, at the headquarters of Kajuru Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
Abducted alongside the 85-year-old monarch were 13 of his family members which included two grandchildren.
The spokesman has revealed that the abductors assured the emirate that the kidnap victims are not undergoing molestation, stating that they are all in good condition.
According to Abubakar, the emirate council is pleading with the abductors to safely release the monarch and all his relatives.
This plea is on the basis of the fragile health condition of the monarch.
