According to reports, 2 prominent emirs have been abducted by the terrorist sect, Boko Haram in Borno.

Security officials have identified the abductees as the Emir of Uba, Ismaila Mamza and the Emir of Gwoza, Idris Timta.

The Emirs were said to have been kidnapped at about 10 am today in the Shafia area on their way to Gombe for the burial of the Emir of Gombe, Shehu Abubakar who died on Tuesday in London.

Abubakar was undergoing treatment for cancer at the Royal Marsden hospital before his death.

Premium Times reports:

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.
