Governor Babagana Zulum’s convoy has come under another fierce Boko Haram attack barely 48 hours after an offensive which claimed 30 lives.
The Borno governor’s convoy was attacked Sunday morning about two kilometers away from Baga.
The latest attack, which recorded no death, occurred when the convoy was returning to Maiduguri.
The convoy, according to some of the people who returned to Maiduguri on Sunday evening from the tour, was shot at by suspected Boko Haram terrorists.
One of them, said, “There was no death recorded this time around except some minor injuries.
“The windscreen of some vehicles was shattered, some vehicles had their tyres busted by gunshots, including the Government House Press Crew bus.
“The military gun truck was also shot at and a soldier had his shoulder scalded with a gunshot.”
Recall that an ambush on the convoy of the Borno State Governor on Friday left about 30 persons dead.
The governor’s convoy was said to have been attacked between Monguno and Baga areas of the state.
Baga town was displaced by the Boko Haram insurgents 21 months ago, with most of the residents taking refuge in Monguno and Maiduguri.
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.
In July the governor’s convoy came under gun attack from ISWAP outside Baga, forcing him to cancel his trip to the town.
A few days ago, the group killed a Nigerian army commander along with three soldiers in an ambush near the town of Damboa.
