Boko haram: Insurgents killing
traditional rulers, 13 district
heads gone
NEWS

The Shehu of Borno, Abubakar El-Kanemi has
revealed that Boko Haram insurgents are targeting
traditional rulers in that state, and has resulted in
the death of 13 district heads.
The monarch revealed that the deadly Boko
Haram and other militants in the region have
moved to local governments, and they are killing
people.
This claim by the Shehu of Borno is in contrast
with the claims by the government and the
security heads that the insurgents are being
neutralized.
The monarch revealed this on Monday while
receiving members of the Senate Committee on
Special duty that visited Borno to assess the
works being done by the North East Development
Commission (NEDC).
“Gradually, they moved their operations from
Maiduguri to local government headquarters and
other towns within Borno. In the course of their
operations, the emirate council lost about 13
district heads in addition to many ward heads,
who were killed in their respective domains,” he
said.
He added that, “The activities of the criminal
elements have not deterred our district and village
heads from being proactive in reporting their
activities to the security agencies.”

He further called for more funding for the NEDC to
help rebuild the region that has been devastated
by the insurgents.
“I want to call for more funding for the
commission to enable it to facilitate the
reconstruction of destroyed communities and
intervention programmes towards empowering all
IDPs. The call became necessary in view of the
huge destruction and losses incurred in the state
as a result of the crises in the last 11 years.”
