The convoy of the Borno State Governor, Prof. Babagana Zulum, was attacked on Saturday by Boko Haram insurgents.

This attack would be the fourth on the convoy of the governor since he assumed office on May 29, 2019.

According to security sources, seven soldiers and two members of the Civilian Joint Task Force (CJTF) were killed in the attack.

According to the source, in the attacked convoy were military and security officers who were to provide support for the governor who flew from Maiduguri in a helicopter.

They were also civilians who were in the convoy to link up with the governor to campaign towards the state local government elections scheduled for next Saturday.

The civilians were expected to join the governor in Baga to distribute relief materials to people in the area.

The source also disclosed that the convoy were attacked along the Gajiram to Monguno road.

It was gathered that the convoy was on its way to Baga in Kukawa Local Government Area to distribute relief items to newly settled IDPs.

The governor, who had flown into the town had to cut short his trip and returned to Maiduguri because of the incident on Saturday.

One of the survivor from the attack, said: “We were attacked by the gunmen who came with about six trucks and seven motorcycles. We engaged them but we lost some of our guys.

“We had no option than to abort the trip and return to Maiduguri with corpses of the deceased. About seven people died immediately but two of my colleagues (soldiers) died from gunshot injuries when we got back to Maiduguri.
