Borno State governor, Babagana Zulum has blasted the Nigerian Army over an attack on his convoy in Baga, a town in Kukawa Local Government Area of the state.
About fifteen persons were wounded as Boko Haram terrorists attacked the convoy of Governor Zulum on his way to Baga on Wednesday for food distribution.
The attack was however repelled by security operatives in the governor’s convoy.
Zulum confronted the Commanding Officer in Mile 4, expressing his disappointment at the inability of the military to rid Baga and environs of insurgents.
“You have 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.
He further queried : “You people said there’s no Boko Haram here, then who attacked us?”
The governor howevr returned safely with his entourage to Monguno where the distribution of palliatives continued.
