The Police Command in Kaduna State has confirmed the death of six people during an attack on the Emir of Potiskum, Alhaji Umaru Bubaram, on Kaduna-Zaria highway on Tuesday night.

The command spokesman, Yakubu Sabo, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the incident occurred at about 11:00pm.

As stated by NAN, several people might have been abducted by the attackers as empty vehicles were left at the scene when government officials visited on Wednesday.

The degree of injury sustained by the Emir is, in spite of that, not clear but Sabo said the monarch was at the Barau Dikko Hospital in Kaduna and was “doing very well. “
