The Islamic State of West African Province (ISWAP), a breakaway faction of the Boko Haram terrorist group, has reportedly kidnapped three brothers from the royal family of Askira Uba Emirate of Borno State.
According to PRNigeria, Mohammed Askira, 50, was kidnapped on Saturday along with his two brothers while they were traveling to Maiduguri, the Borno State capital after attending a function in Askira Uba town.
