Oh dear! Our country Nigeria is now a killing field where some heartless human beings called Boko Haram kill both civilians and soldiers in broad day light and at time time with impunity. What is really going on?
As you read this, members of the deadly Islamist terrorist group, Boko Haram, have kidnapped 3 traditional rulers — called Emirs — in Nigeria’s volatile and violence-plagued North East.
“Boko Haram militants ambushed their (emirs) convoy and kidnapped the traditional rulers,” a top security source confirmed on Friday afternoon.
According to Sahara Reporters, Boko Haram gunmen seized the emirs as they made a trip to Gombe, capital of Gombe State, to attend the funeral of the Emir of Gombe, Shehu Abubakar, who died last Tuesday.
The two traditional rulers who escaped were identified as the Emir of Askira, Abdullahi Askirama and the Emir of Uba, Ismaila Mamza.
