Kidnapped Emir of Kajuru, Alhaji Alhassan Adamu, on Monday, broke down in tears shortly after his release by his abductors.
The monarch was addressing a gathering of his subjects shortly after his release, but he was suddenly overwhelmed by emotions and he broke down in tears.
Adamu had only managed to say, “People of Kajuru…” when he became too overwhelmed by his emotions and began to sob and shed tears.
In a 21-second video clip now going viral, the Emir had to quickly cover his face with both hands to contain his emotions.
Following his release on Monday evening, he reunited with his subjects back in Kajuru.
The Emir had in the early hours of Sunday been abducted him from his private residence in Kajuru along with 13 other family members.
The abductors had, on Monday, contacted the Emir’s family to demand a ransom of N200 million, but a few hours after this, the monarch marched back into his domain in Kaduna State.
But his children, grandchildren, and some title holders of the emirate are still being held by the abductors.
