Bandits have buried the corpse of the wife of the Fulani Chief of Rugan Ardo in Janjala community in Kagarko LGA of Kaduna State, Abubakar Ardo, who they killed in their den and urged them to pray for her soul.
According to Daily Trust, a member of the family, Wakili Usman, who spoke through telephone on Tuesday, said the bandits’ leader informed a family member of the development, who placed a call to the bandits to beg for the release of the woman’s corpse for burial.
Usman said the family had pleaded with the bandits to release the woman’s corpse, but were shocked when their leader replied on Monday that the body of the woman had already been buried in their den.
The Madaki of Janjala, Samaila Babangida, who also confirmed the development on telephone, said, “I was away in Jere when a call came that the bandits called to inform the family that they had already buried Ardo’s wife in their camp. The next thing we did was to hold a funeral prayer for her.”
He noted that the majority of residents of Janjala, especially women and children, had deserted the community because of incessant abductions of people in the area.
WITHIN NIGERIA recalls that bandits killed the senior wife of the Fulani chief after collecting 2 million naira ransom from the family in Kaduna State.
The bandits had on February 11, 2023, invaded the residence of the Chief, Malam Husaaini Ardo, at Rugan Ardo in Kagarko LGA and abducted his four wives.
