The two emirs were seized by gun-wielding insurgents at 10 a.m Friday near Shaffa while they were travelling to Gombe to attend the funeral of the Emir of Gombe, ShehuAbubakar, who died on Tuesday evening at the Royal Marsden Hospital, London, where he was undergoing treatment for cancer.

The two abducted emirs were elevated to First Class traditional ruler status only in January.

The Borno state government is yet to issue an official statement on the abduction.

The abduction came 46 days after the Boko Haram sect whisked away over 250 schoolgirls from their dormitories in Chibok.

Over 200 of the girls are yet to be freed.
