No fewer than 30 people, including police officers and soldiers, have died following an attack by Boko Haram terrorists on the convoy of Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno State.

Aside the security personnel, four members of a government-backed militia and nine civilians who were in the convoy of the Governor were also said to have been killed in the attack which occurred on Friday.

Governor’s Zulum’s convoy was said to have been attacked between Monguno and Baga areas of the state.

A source at the Borno State Government House in Maiduguri also told The Punch that the governor had left Maiduguri for Baga to prepare for the planned return of internally displaced persons from Maiduguri to the camps in Baga.

The governor was said to have left Maiduguri with a retinue of armed soldiers, police officers and Civilian -JTF personnel.

A senior police officer, who spoke on condition of anonymity, stated that he was told eight persons were killed, including security personnel and civilians.

This is the second time Governor Zulum’s convoy would be attacked by the insurgents in recent times around Baga.
