A latest attack on the convoy of the Governor of Borno- State, Babagana Umara Zulum, occurred around 10:30 am on Sunday, September 27 2020 by another set of insurgents but casualties recorded.
This happened barely 24 hours after some members of the dreaded Boko Haram ambushed his convoy along Cross Kauwa-Baga road in Borno state leaving over 30 people dead including 10 policemen and 4 soldiers.
The windscreen of some vehicles was shattered, some vehicles had their tyres busted by gunshots, including the Government House Press Crew bus.
According to eyewitnesses, the attack led to the shooting of a back tyre of the vehicle/bus conveying journalists attached to the governor, but the driver manuveared and drove the vehicle on the flat wheel to escape the scene.
However, Zulum was on an assessment tour of Baga in preparation for the return of thousands of residents displaced from the town by the jihadists in 2014.
Baga town was displaced by the Boko Haram insurgents 21 months ago, with most of the residents taking refuge in Monguno and Maiduguri.
The governor’s convoy was said to have been attacked between Monguno and Baga areas of the state.
