Another attack on Governor Babagana Umara Zulum Convoy happened again on Sunday evening, barely 48 hours after the same insurgents ambushed his convoy and killed over 30 people, including 10 policemen and 4 soldiers.
The Vanguard reported that another set of insurgents laid ambush along Monguno-Maiduguri axis and attacked the governor’s convoy.
Monguno is north and about 80km drive to Maiduguri, the town hosted thousands of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) mostly from Marte, Baga, Kukawa, Dikwa, and other surrounding Local Government Areas.
According to sources, the attack led to the shooting of a back tyre of the vehicle/bus conveying Journalists attached to the governor, but the driver maneuvered and drove the vehicle on the flat wheel to escape the scene.
Although, details were sketchy at press time, one of the occupants/Journalists in the affected bus who did not want his name mentioned confirmed to our correspondent that the convoy ran into another Boko Haram ambush about 50km away to Maiduguri.
Unfortunately, the Journalist cell phone lines went off due to poor network, but investigation revealed that no casualty recorded in the latest Sunday ambush.
