The Member Representing Kagarko Constituency and Deputy Speaker ,Kaduna State House of Assembly ,Honourable Nuhu Goroh Shadalafiya commiserates with the people of Adara Kingdom over the loss of their Paramount chief ,Agwom Adara , HRH, Dr. Maiwada Galadima(JP).
Honourable Shadalafiya ,who described the late Agwom Adara as an amiable traditional ruler with passion for peace and development in Kachia and Kajuru local government areas recalled his encounter with him ,when he led a group of stakeholders from Kachia and Kagarko to pay him Sallah homage .
He said during the visit , the late Agwom Adara ” Spoke about peace and development and was passionate about development of Kachia and Kajuru local government areas as well as encouraged all the stakeholders to live in peace with one another and urged us to pray for the government . “
The Deputy Speaker ,who stated this in an interview with journalists on Friday while reacting to unfortunate death of the Agwom Adara , condemned what he described as ,”gruesome murder” of the traditional ruler.
According to him , there was no basis to kill a man ,who always preached peace and harmonious coexistence within and outside his immediate kingdom.
He further said , ” To kidnap and kill such a gentleman is barbaric,senseless and regrettable . For me , there was no justification for such barbaric act. The perpetrators must be arrested and punished accordingly .
“Any rational thinking humanbeing ,must asked questions and condemn the motive behind the killing of a traditional ruler ,whose efforts to sustainable peace ,unity and progress of not only his immediate kingdom is unquantifiable ,but also worthy of emulation.
“The Agom Adara represented the desired peace loving people of Kaduna state. For his life to be cut short in a gruesome manner is sad and regrettable.
“As lawmakers ,we are doing all our best to ensure that all his virtues as an ambassador of peace and development are maintained . We are also working round the clock to give the necessary support to Kaduna State Governor , His Excellency , Malam Nasir El-Rufai to ensure that sustainable peace reigns in Kaduna .
“We as(lawmakers) join the Governor and all citizens of the state to mourn the death of the Paramount chief ,we urged the peace loving people of Kachia ,Kajura and Chikun local government areas to remain calm and abide by the measures put in place to restore normalcy in the state.
“I also urge all citizens to shun acts inimical to peace and caution against all forms of reprisal attacks in all parts of the State .
