Boko Haram terrorists have attacked the convoy of Babagana Zulum, Governor of Borno State.
The attack occurred on Thursday night at Konduga while Zulum was returning from Bama Local Government 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,” TheCable quoted a source to have 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.”
The attack comes seven months after Kashim Shettima, Zulum’s predecessor, was attacked by the sect on his way to Gamboru Ngala, still in Borno.
