Boko Haram is said to have instituted Sharia Law in Mubi, Adamawa State which they took over last week. The insurgents were also said to have amputated the hands of 10 residents said to have been found guilty of offences, including looting of property of fleeing residents. The victims were said to been amputated in the presence of residents the insurgents asked to converge to witness the enforcement of Sharia law.
A source further said that the Emir’s palace in Mubi had been converted to the residence of the ‘Amir’ and that the insurgents hoisted their flags to signify that they were in control of the palace.
