Zulum’s convoy was attacked last Wednesday in Baga, while on his way to visit internally displaced persons (IDP) camps in Kukawa Local Government Area of the state.

The attack was initially believed to have been carried out by members of the terrorist group, but speaking with reporters, Zulum attributed it to a sabotage from the army.

“You heard what happened at Baga. It is a complete sabotage. The issue is not about the president. The soldiers and equipment are on ground. We have a total number of about 1,181 soldiers in Baga. I think the problem is in the command or control structure which has to be looked into,” Zulum said.

“I cannot end my interview without clearly stating what happened. As far as I am concerned, there was no Boko Haram inside the town. That was a serious shooting by the Nigerian armed forces who are residing in Baga. The situation is very embarrassing.
