You say there is no Boko Haram, yet I was attacked – Gov Zulum blasts army

Governor of Borno State, Babagana Zulum has criticized the Nigerian army following an attack on his convoy in Baga on Wednesday night.

DAILY POST reported that about fifteen persons were wounded   as Boko Haram terrorists attacked the convoy.

The governor and his entourage were at Baga town, one of the areas difficult to reach for humanitarian activities, when his convoy was ambushed by the terrorist group.

Though the attack was repelled by security operatives in the governor’s convoy, there were casualties on the side of his entourage.

Zulum, thereafter confronted the Commanding Officer in Mile 4, expressing his disappointment at the inability of the military to rid Baga and environs of insurgents.

“The army has been here for over one year now, there are 1,181 soldiers here; if you cannot take over Baga which is less than 5 km from your base, then we should forget about Baga.

“I will inform the Chief of Army Staff to redeploy the men to other places that they can be useful,” Zulum said.

The governor further questioned the authenticity of the army’s position that Boko Haram insurgents have been neutralised in the state, Channels Tv reports.

“You said there is no Boko Haram here, then who attacked us,” Zulum questioned.” Daily Post

    cats to work with their instincts of hunting and playing
