BREAKING: Boko Haram Abduct Two First Class Emirs As Third Traditional Ruler Escapes



Armed men suspected to be members of the Boko Haram terrorist sect have kidnapped two Borno State first class traditional rulers.
Security officials in the area have disclosed that the two rulers are the Emir of Uba, Ismaila Mamza, and the Emir of Gwoza, Idrisa Timta. The two were given the status of first class traditional rulers in January this year.
The incident happened near Shaffa town in Zur village, Hawul local government area of Borno State, at about 10 a.m. today as the Emirs were on their way to Gombe State to attend the funeral ceremony of the Emir of Gombe, Shehu Abubakar, who passed away on Tuesday.
Eyewitnesses say the monarchs were forcefully whisked away by heavily armed men suspected to be members of Boko Haram.
According to sources, another first class monarch, the Emir of Askira Alhaji Abdullahi Ibn Muhammadu Askirama was in Abuja at the time of the kidnap. His representative has avoided the armed gunmen who intercepted the rulers of Uba and Gwoza.
The Borno State authorities are yet to issue a reaction to the development.
In the past couple of months, Borno State has been a frequent target for Boko Haram insurgents. Although the military and civilian vigilante groups are fighting the terrorists, many villages have been destroyed and ravaged. Hundreds of girls kidnapped by the Boko Haram from Chibok town still remain in their hands.
