Gunmen Kill Ex-Borno Governor’s Associate

Some gunmen yesterday shot dead Alhaji Mustapha Flawama, an associate of former Borno State Governor Ali Modu Sheriff.

Although not a member of the state executive council, Flawama, 62, was a member of Sheriff’s inner caucus during his tenure between 2003-2011.

Residents said the gunmen trailed the deceased to his house at Polo area of Maiduguri.

“They came around 10.30am in a tricycle and met him within the premises of his house. Without delay, they manoeuvred their way and fired several gun shots into his head and chest. He died on the spot. The assailants sped off, a resident said.

They also targeted police formations and schools.

The Chibok Divisional Police Station, a Bible and primary schools and telecom masts of GSM firms in Chibok town were burnt down.

Chibok is 130 kilometres south of Maiduguri.

According to an eyewitness and resident of Chibok, the gunmen came in two unmarked Golf Volkswagen vehicles armed with petrol-bombs and Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) to attack the police station and the schools at dusk.
