The Kaduna state governor, Malam Nasir el-Rufai has ordered the arrest and detention of the paramount Ruler of the Kurama Nation in Lere Local Government, Dr Ishaku Damina, JP.
Even though details of the arrest were still scanty as at the time of filling this report, Elanza News gathered that the Traditional ruler has been queried several times by the governor.
Unlike the norm by the el-Rufai led administration, no statement has been issued concerning the arrest and the detention of the traditional ruler.
Elanza News gathered that the Traditional ruler, Dr Ishaku Damina JP was arrested on Wednesday along with three others.
“They are being accused of Criminal Conspiracy, Assault and Adoption,” a source told Elanza News.
A native of Kurama Chiefdom informed this medium that the arrest may not be unconnected with some Fulani herdsmen militia that ran out of luck in the community.
“Some armed herdsmen invaders who went to attack some villages in the chiefdom were engaged by the Kurama youth and as God will do it, the casualties came from the herdsmen militia group. Since then, the traditional ruler has been replying queries from the state government,” he added.
Kaduna state police command is yet to issue an official statement concerning the happening.
