Two years after, two out of the five Borno emirs forced to flee their domain by Boko Haram terrorists, have returned to their palaces.
It would be recalled that the emirs fled to Maiduguri two years ago when the insurgents took control of their domain in Askira/Uba Local Government Area of the state.
The insurgents took control of the area in August 2015 and announced the establishment of a Caliphate, forcing residents including the emirs to flee.
They were however dislodged by the military which took control of the area and restored normalcy.
The two emirs, Muhammadu Askirama of Askira, and Ismaila Mamza of Uba, returned to their respective palaces on Tuesday in company of Borno Deputy Governor, Mamman Durkuwa.
Speaking at a short ceremony at their palaces, the emirs commended the Nigerian military for their gallantry in routing the Boko Haram terrorists.
They expressed optimism that terrorism would end soon in the country, going by the successes being recorded by the military.
Also speaking, Mr. Durkuwa assured the emirs that the government would undertake projects to restore life back to the area.
The deputy governor urged residents to be law abiding and report any sign of security threat to relevant agencies.
It was however gatheredthat three other emirs yet to return to their domain include the Emir of Bama, Kyari El-Kanemi, Emir of Dikwa, Muhammad Ibn Masta, and Chief of Gwoza, Muhammad Timta.
The three are still residing in Maiduguri, the state capital.
