“This is a necessary step to help maintain peace as we mourn the death of
HRH Agom Adara, who we lost in the early hours of today to the criminals who abducted him last week.
“The Kaduna State Government calls for calm in all our communities. The criminal elements who perpetrated this crime should not be allowed to divide us.
“This is a struggle between good, decent law abiding people trying to uphold the peace and criminals who want to divide and destroy.

“Let us unite against every criminal activity. Let us stand together as human beings who have a right to live in peace.
