Boko Haram insurgents on Saturday afternoon burnt a section of the Emir of Jajare’s Palace in Babangida headquarters of Tarmuwa Local Government Area of Yobe State, according to a report by The Nation.   

Eyewitness said the insurgents headed straight for the emir’s palace upon entering the town but the Emir had left the palace before that time.

Apart from setting the palace on fire, the hoodlums also went away with a Hilux van belonging to the Emir.

A resident of the community claimed that the insurgents were on a mission to eliminate the District Head in a revenge mission for earlier giving intelligence report to security agencies that led to the elimination of some Boko Haram members.
