Governor of Borno state, Babagana Zulum luckily escaped death on Thursday night as Boko Haram terrorists opened fire on his convoy at Konduga while returning from a trip to Bama local government area of the state.

According to Security Sources, the attack happened around 9 pm after Governor Zulum had visited Bayo, Kwaya Kusar, Askira Uba and Gwoza as part of his “familiarity and need assessment tour” of the 27 LGAs in the state.

“Luckily the governor, his commissioners and other vehicle in the convoy escaped unhurt but the last vehicle which is an army gun truck was pelted with bullets.

“Immediately after they fired at us, our men in collaboration with the armed personnel from the Federal Special Anti Robbery Squad (FSARS), quickly retaliated and thwarted the ambush.” the source said.

The attack on Zulum comes seven months after Kashim Shettima, Zulum’s successor was attacked by the terror group on his way to Gamboru Ngala, still in Borno. 60 persons were reportedly killed in the incident while over 100 were kidnapped.
