The extremist Boko Haram sect has

kidnapped two first class traditional rulers

in Borno state – the Emir of Uba, Ismaila

Mamza and the Emir of Gwoza, Idrisa

Timta, security officials aware of the

incidence have told PREMIUM TIMES.

The two emirs were seized by gun-

wielding insurgents at 10a.m Friday near

Shaffa while they were travelling to

Gombe to attend the funeral of the Emir of

Gombe, Shehu Abubakar, who died on

Tuesday evening at the Royal Marsden

Hospital, London, where he was

undergoing treatment for cancer.

The two abducted emirs were elevated to

First Class traditional ruler status only in

January.

The Borno state government is yet to

issue an official statement on the

abduction.

The abduction came 46 days after the Boko

Haram sect whisked away over 250

schoolgirls from their dormitories in

Chibok.

Over 200 of the girls are yet to be freed.
