posted in: News | 0

The Boko Haram insurgents have burnt down the palace of the Emir of Askira in Askira-Uba Local Government Area of Borno State, the spokesman for the youth vigilance group, Jubrin Gunda, said on Tuesday.
Speaking to our correspondent on the telephone, Gunda said the palace was attacked by the insurgents on Sunday night.
He said during the Sunday’s attack, the palace was razed by the terrorist sect.
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 other houses and killed scores of residents of the town.
Gunda added, “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 has been captured.”
