The monarch’s family were recently abducted in Jalingo, the state capital, and brutally murdered by suspected kidnappers. Their decomposing remains were found in a forest.
The police are yet to make any arrests in connection to the crime.
Shocked by the incident, the state governor, through his Commissioner of Information and Reorientation, Lois Emmanuel, described the act as “barbaric, ungodly, inhuman and uncivilised.”
Ishaku regretted that the state government’s sustained efforts to rid the state of kidnappings and other forms of banditry were being thwarted by the recent developments.
He vowed not to relent in his determination to keep citizens safe.
He also vowed to network with the various security agencies in the state to bring to book the perpetrators of the dastardly act.
Ishaku urged security operatives to work round the clock in fishing out both the sponsors and the perpetrators of the crime.
