The Traditional ruler of Jaba, the Kpop Ham of Jaba Chiefdom in Kaduna State, Jonathan Danladi Gyet Maude, has been abducted.

Maude was abducted by bandits in Nasarawa State.

Kaduna State Police Public Relations Officer, Mohammed Jalige, confirmed the abduction to newsmen.

He said the traditional rule was abducted around Panda in Nasarawa State while visiting his farm.

The bandits had demanded a 200-million-naira ransom.
