The Emir of Gwoza, Alhaji Mohammed Idrissa Timta, whose whereabouts was unknown after his town was attacked and captured by Boko Haram insurgents last week, has resurfaced after he escaped from his abductors.

The Emir, it was gathered was held hostage at one of the mountains of Gwoza by the insurgents alongside some of his subjects.

The monarch reportedly escaped captivity with some of his subjects on Sunday night due to heavy rainfall which allowed for relaxed watch from their abductors.

According to sources, the emir and one of his district heads also held captive were able to escape with others to Madagali in Adamawa State.

The source revealed that the Emir is being prepared for a trip to Yola where he is expected to board a flight to Abuja.

In Abuja, he is expected to undergo medical checkup.
