A family source confirmed to Periscope International that Maude, 83, a first class traditional ruler and the Kpop Ham of Jaba land, was abducted by the bandits while on his farm at Gitata town in neighbouring Nasarawa State at about 2pm.

The source said the kidnappers went away with the monarch alone without taking any of his aides along and said, “I don’t know how the abductors expect the old man to survive the long trekking into the forest in their custody.”
