Boko Haram Kidnaps Three Emirs, Kills Emir of Gwoza

Members of the Islamist terrorist group, Boko Haram, today kidnapped three traditional rulers—called Emirs —in Nigeria’s volatile and violence-plagued northeast.

Two of the emirs were later escaped unhurt, but the third, Muhammadu Idrisa Timta, the Emir of Gwoza, died at the hands of the kidnappers.

SaharaReporters learnt that Boko Haram gunmen seized the emirs as they made a trip to Gombe, the capital of Gombe State, to attend the funeral of the Emir of Gombe, Shehu Abubakar, who died last Tuesday in London.

“Boko Haram militants ambushed their [emirs’] convoy and kidnapped the traditional rulers,” a security source told SaharaReporters.

Two of the traditional rulers who escaped were identified as the Emir of Askira, Abdullahi Askirama and the Emir Of Uba, Ismaila Mamza
