BREAKING: President Buhari Meets Borno Governor, Zulum




Boko Haram: Buhari To Overhaul Counter-Insurgency Operation After Meeting Borno Governor

President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday met with Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno State, North-east Nigeria.

In a post on Twitter, the Personal Assistant to the President on Social Media, Bashir Ahmad, disclosed that the meeting was held at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Naija News reports that though the reasons for the meeting have not been made known at the time of filing in this report, the meeting may be connected to recent attacks of Boko Hama/ISWAP insurgents on Borno communities.

Recall that the dreaded Boko Haram terrorists had on Saturday attacked Monguno town and Goni Sulemanti Village in Borno State.

This happened a few days after the insurgents had killed over 81 people in the state.

A survivor of the attack told the Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum, that the Boko Haram insurgents pretended to be Islamic religious crusaders, collected arms from herders and killed 81 persons.

The survivor said that apart from the 81 persons left dead, 13 were injured, while seven others were abducted in Tuesday’s attack.

He said, “The insurgents disguised as if they had come to enlighten the community, disarmed the herders and shot all of them, including the underaged, and even their animals. They abducted seven people.”
