Boko Haram Burns Down Emir of Askira’s Palace

EMIRReports have confirmed that Boko Haram insurgents burnt down the palace of the Emir of Askira in Askira-Uba Local Government Area of Borno State.

A spokesman for the youth vigilante group, Jubrin Gunda, said on Tuesday that the palace was attacked by the insurgents on Sunday night. He said the palace was razed by the sect’s fighters during the attack.

He lamented that after beating a retreat on Sunday, the insurgents came back to Askira on Monday morning to continue their reign of terror as they burnt down some other houses and killed many residents of the town. Gunda said:

“As of now, I cannot tell you the number of people killed but all I can say is that the palace of the emir was razed on Sunday by the insurgents at night, they equally returned to burn more houses in the town on Monday morning.

At the moment, they are not in the town as they have fled back into the bushes and as such you cannot say the town was captured.”
