The Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum has challenged the Nigerian army over an attack on his convoy in Baga, a town in Kukawa local government.

Governor Zulum was said to have left with journalists and the State Palliative Committee with the intention to complete his task before the Eid-el-Kabir celebrations when military bomb sweepers discovered and detonated landmines laced on the governor’s path ahead of his arrival.

 

A few kilometers to Baga, gunmen also opened fire on the Governor and his entourage, forcing the Governor to retreat as security operatives on escort duties replied fire and repelled the attackers.

 

Reacting to the attack, Governor Zulum confronted the Commanding Officer in Mile Four, expressing his disappointment at the inability of the military to rid Baga and environs of insurgents.
