The Kaduna State Government has condemned the killing of the Etum Numana in Sanga Local Government Area, Alhaji Gambo Makama and his wife in the early hours of Monday, Jan. 1, 2018, by unknown assassins.
Samuel Aruwan, Senior Special Assistant on media and publicity to the State Governor, told newsmen in Kaduna, Monday, that the late Etum Numana was a peacemaker who was committed to development in his chiefdom.
“The government commiserates with the immediate family of the royal father and his wife, the people of Numana Chiefdom and the entire Sanga Local Government.
“The government condemns this double murder that was a calculated threat to peace, and a most unfortunate attempt to introduce into the new year a pattern of criminality that needlessly threatens the right of citizens to security, life and liberty”.
He appealed to anyone with useful information on the murder to report to the relevant security agencies and assured them that the information will be treated with the utmost confidentiality.
The state government has directed security agencies to investigate the criminal incident, and to bring the assailants to justice, said the spokesman.
