The abductors of the Emir of Kajuru, Alhaji Alhassan Adamu, have demanded a ransom of N200 million.
The second-class monarch and 13 other members of his family were abducted from his personal residence in Kajuru town in the early hours of Sunday, July 11.
The spokesperson of the Kajuru Emirate Council, Dahiru Abubakar, disclosed news of the ransom demand on Monday, July 12.
According to Mr Abubakar, the bandits assured them that all the victims are in good condition and were not being molested.
He said the council is still appealing to the bandits to release the 85-year-old monarch and his relatives unconditionally, especially given his fragile health.
