Two brothers, who belong to the royal family of Askira/Uba Emirate in Borno State, have regained freedom after four months in the captivity of the Boko Haram terrorists.

Mohammed Askira, 50, and his brothers were kidnapped in November 2021 by the Islamic State’s West Africa Province (ISWAP) faction of the terrorists.

The trio were kidnapped while travelling to Maiduguri after attending a function in the town.

ISWAP later released videos parading Askira and other abductees from different locations in the Northeast region of Nigeria.

Mohammed and his brothers, who are siblings to the Emir of Askira, Abdullahi Mohammed Askirama II, have now regained freedom.

Meanwhile, some social media users on Thursday took to their various platforms to celebrate the release of the Victims.
