Nigeria Army has promised that whoever that responsible for the attack on the convoy of Borno state Governor, Prof. Babagana Zulum will be fished out and punished.
The Army stated this through a statement put out on Thursday by its spokesman, Col. Sagir Musam adding that details of the incident were still sketchy and under investigation.
Zulum was attacked on his way to some internally displaced persons camps in Baga, a town under Kukawa Local Government Area on Wednesday night.
Col. Sagir Musa said- “The convoy of the governor of Borno State, Prof Babagana Zulum, came under Boko Haram terrorists fire while visiting Baga town on the 29th of July 2020. The Executive governor had earlier paid a visit to the Commander, 19 Brigade at the Nigerian Army Super Camp, Baga, where he was fully briefed about the prevailing security situation in the general area. The unfortunate incident occurred shortly after the governor and his entourage departed the Super Camp to visit other parts of Baga town. The incident forced the governor to abort his planned movement to Baga.
“Although details of the unfortunate incident are sketchy and under investigation, efforts are ongoing to comb the area where the incident occurred with a view to track down and deal decisively with the attackers. An investigation is also in progress to identify the circumstances that led to the attack,” he stated.
