A statement signed by the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor (Media and Publicity), Samuel Aruwan, made available on 26th October 2018 said that this is a necessary step to help maintain peace as, “We mourn the death of His Royal Highness Agom Adara, who we lost in the early hours of today to the criminals who abducted him last week”
“The Kaduna State Government calls for calm in all our communities. The criminal elements who perpetrated this crime should not be allowed to divide us.
“This is a struggle between good, decent, law-abiding people trying to uphold the peace and criminals who want to divide and destroy. It is not a struggle between religious or ethnic groups. Let no criminal find succour in faith or tribe.
“Let us unite against every criminal activity. Let us stand together as human beings who have a right to live in peace,” the state reads.
