- Singer Joel has lost his father hours after crying out about his disappearance
- Joel shared the heartbreaking news on his Twitter page
- Condolence messages have poured in for the Nigerian musician
It is indeed a trying period for popular Nigerian singer Joel who has just lost his beloved father to the ongoing killings in Southern Kaduna.
The Kennis music star in a post shared on his Twitter page on Saturday, July 7, disclosed that his dad was allegedly shot by herdsmen.
Recall that earlier on, Legit.ng reported that the music star took to his page on Instagram to cry out over the sudden disappearance of his father and some other villagers following an attack on them.
Joel had called on Governor El-Rufai and other security agencies to look into the situation in the village.
Unfortunately, hours after his outcry, the entertainer has now lost his parent. In the post shared on his Twitter page, Joel noted that his mum and sisters are far too destabilized to talk to him.
He once again called on the governor on the state to do something about what is going on in Southern Kaduna.
Joel said: "It’s just been confirmed that my lovely dad is dead-shot by herdsmen and my mom and sisters can’t even talk to me on phone please tag @elrufai he needs to know that he is not doing enough to curb the state of terrorism in Kaduna state."
