Borno Governor, Zulum escape another near death attack by 'Boko Haram'


The convoy of governor of Borno state, Babagana Zulum has been once again attacked by suspected Boko Haram terrorists.

This incident comes barely 48 hours after the governor’s convoy was attacked by insurgents on Friday.

Security operatives were killed when the terror group opened fire on the governor’s convoy and other vehicles conveying government officials to Baga, a town in the state, for the resettlement of internally displaced persons (IDPs).

However, the Sunday attack reportedly occurred along Baga-Kukawa axis of Borno.

According to reports, troops of the Nigerian air force were mobilised immediately to the scene of the incident and were able to foil the insurgents’ attack.

However, one of the soldiers attached to the convoy sustained injuries during the attack.

Reacting to the previous attack, governor Zulum has said Boko Haram wants to take over the state.

In July, the governor’s convoy was also attacked at Baga while he was on his way to some IDP camps in the northern part of Borno.
