BOKO HARAM GUNMEN KILL SENIOR MUSLIM CLERIC IN NORTHEAST NIGERIA

Boko Haram gunmen on Friday killed a Nigerian Islamic monarch in their northeastern stronghold of Borno in an attack that also targeted two other Muslim royals who escaped unhurt, the state government said.
The Emir of Gwoza, Idrissa Timta, was shot dead in the Tashan Alade area of Borno state while travelling by road to the funeral of another senior cleric, Borno’s government said.
The Emir of Uba, Ali Ibn Ismaila Mamza, and the Emir of Askira, Abdullahi Ibn Muhammadu Askirama, were also in the convoy but were not harmed.
“The gunmen… specifically targeted the vehicle conveying the three emirs and opened fire,” said a statement from Borno’s state secretary, Baba Ahmed Jidda.
Timta “was killed around 9:00am (0800 GMT) today (Friday) following a bloody attack by some gunmen believed to be members of Boko Haram”, the statement added.
