Emir Of Gwoza Death..Security Agents Were Pre Warned

Following the assassination of the Emir of Gwoza, Alhaji Idrissa Timta, during an attack by gunmen suspected to be members of the Boko Haram sect, on Friday, residents of Zhur community in Borno State insisted that they had noticed the movement of some youths in the area three days before the attack and had therefore informed security operatives.
This was made known during an interaction with the locals who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
According to them, three days before the attack, they had noticed that a lorry carrying youths aged between 20 and 25 years was seen around their vicinity, close to a forest. The lorry had broken down and efforts to fix it by the youths had attracted onlookers. 
But what was unusual was that before long, residents who saw the youths observed that they all left the lorry and entered into the forest after which their whereabouts was not known. After a while, it was gathered, the lorry could not be found. This raised suspicion among the locals who went straight to security operatives to report the suspicious movement of the youth.
After reporting the scene to the security operatives, locals were uncertain of what was done by the operatives in respect of the situation. 
It will be recalled that the death of the emir on Friday by the gunmen sparked off security unrest in the area as many of the residents decided to flee the area but for the quick intervention of the military who helped to calm the situation. The traditional ruler was murdered on his way with others to the funeral of the Emir of Gombe who had died on Tuesday.
