Governor Zulum of Borno State blasts Nigerian Army Over the attack on his convoy by Boko Haram terrorists.
The anger of Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum boils over the Nigerian Army over the attack on his convoy by Boko Haram terrorists.
Zulum in his vexed state has criticized the Nigerian army for lying about the current state of the Boko Haram terrorists in Nigeria.
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.
In a report by Daily Post, the news agency reported that about fifteen persons were wounded as Boko Haram terrorists attacked the convoy.
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.”
The governor further threatened to order for the relocation of all the army personnels in the base from their Chief of Army staff.
“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.
Meanwhile, a set of Ex-Boko Haram terrorists numbered 601 recently graduated and freed into the community by the federal government after being convinced of repentance.
