LGAs Empowerment: B/Haram Opens Fire At Borno Governor’s Convoy

Governor of Borno State, Babagana Zulum on an empowerment and need assessment tour of the 27 Local Government Areas (LGAs) in the state, has been attacked by Boko Haram militants.

Boko Haram fighters open fire on the convoy of Babagana Zulum, governor of Borno state, on Thursday night.

Security sources quoted by TheCable Newspaper say the insurgents attacked the convoy at Konduga while Zulum was returning from a trip to Bama local government area.

The incident was said to have happened around 9pm.

Zulum had visited Bayo, Kwaya Kusar, Askira Uba and Gwoza as part of his “familiarity and need assessment tour” of the 27 LGAs in the state.

“Luckily the governor, his commissioners and other vehicle in the convoy escaped unhurt but the last vehicle which is an army gun truck was pelted with bullets,” the source said.

“Immediately after they fired at us, our men in collaboration with the armed personnel from the Federal Special Anti Robbery Squad(FSARS), quickly retaliated and thwarted the ambush.”

Konduga, an area near Sambisa forest, has come under many attacks from the faction of Boko Haram under the control of Abubakar Shekau.
