The coronation was low keyed due to security challenge.
The kingmakers in Gwoza Emirate Council of Borno, on Wednesday announced Muhammad Timta as the new Emir of Gwoza.
Mr. Timta replaces his father, Shehu, killed by Boko Haram on his way to Gombe two weeks ago.
The new emir was chosen after a meeting of the kingmakers in Gwoza.
The coronation was low key due to security challenge and continuous attacks on Gwoza by Boko Haram insurgents.
The new Emir, however, promised to unite and strengthen the relationship between Christians and Muslims in the area.
