Killing of Adara Monarch
The Adara paramount ruler, the Agom Adara, Late Dr Maiwada Raphael Galadima, was abducted and later killed by his abductors on 26th October, 2018, six days after been kidnapped alongside others, after his convoy was forcefully stopped and his police orderly, with three of his palace guards shot dead about 30 kilometers to Kachia town, headquarters of his domain.

Abolition of Adara Chiefdom & Injustice
It is now clear that the Adara people of Nigeria has been earmarked for total subjugation, their Chiefdom and culture for outright extinction. This seems to be the most logical explanation in the situation. “Zazzau Emirate” being almost half of Kaduna State has been left intact with its cultural and religious nomenclatures. Also several smaller Chiefdoms and Emirates have similarly been allowed either intact or with minor changes. But Adara Chiefdom being the second largest in the state has been out rightly abolished. Its people have been balkanized and forcefully subordinated in the new Kachia Chiefdom and Kajuru Emirate. This was done to create the circumstances where the identity, culture and well-being of Adara people will be permanently suppressed, overshadowed and ultimately destroyed. And this is being done to us after withdrawing our long held title of being the most peaceful and accommodating Chiefdom just because they have been unsuccessfully attempting to defend themselves from criminals, aggressors and murderers. This is the greatest injustice them. Editor (December 3, 2018). Adara people tell Gov el-Rufai: We can’t be under Kajuru Emirate. |National Accord Newspaper.

Solution
On behalf of Adara people of Nigeria, I am appealing through this petition, to the Nigerian Government, United Nations, our friends, well-wishers and the international community to come to the aid of the Adara people of Nigeria to ensure the once most peaceful chiefdom is restored.
