Suspected gunmen on Wednesday attacked the convoy of the Borno State Governor, Prof. Babagana Zulum, in Baga Town.
A source noted that the governor was on his way to some internally displaced persons (IDP) camps in the northern part of Borno when his convoy was attacked.
The source said, “The governor went to Kukawa, and on his way to Baga his convoy was attacked. Nobody was injured.”
As at the time of filing this report there are no indications if Governor Zulum was attacked by Boko Haram insurgents.
The Borno State Governor has, however, returned to Maiduguri, the state capital, as of 9:10 pm on Wednesday.
But Mohammed Mai Bukar, one of the governor’s aides, assured residents that he is safe.
In a Facebook post, Bukar wrote: “To Our Concerned citizens H.E Prof.Zulum and His Entourage are all fine and there was (were) no casualties. Thanks!”
This is the second known attack on the convoy of Zulum within a year.
