Emir of Gwoza Paid a Sacrifice to End Boko Haram, Says Wakil


The Minister of State for Power, Hon. Mohammed Wakil Saturday said, the murder of the Emir of Gwoza, Alhaji Idrissa Timta, was a sacrifice that should propel the military to finding a solution to the Boko Haram menace. Alhaji Timta was killed by suspected members of the outlawed Boko Haram in a highway ambush on Friday.

Wakil condemned the brutal murder as disrespectful, “barbaric and utterly un-Islamic.” The minister while expressing deep shock and sadness over the incident said it was reprehensible for the sect to attack revered Emirs of Askira, Alhaji Abdullahi Ibn Muhammed Askirama II, late Alhaji Idrissa Timta of Gwoza and Emir of Uba, Alhaji Ali Ibn Ismaila Mamza II.
