Borno State Govt Debunks Media Reports Of Attack On Governor Zulum's Convoy By Boko Haram

The Borno State Government has debunked media reports claiming that the convoy of Borno Governor, Babagana Umara Zulum was attacked by Boko Haram, IgbereTV reports.

A report by an online media medium had claimed that terrorists on Saturday, ambushed an advance team of the governor at Ja'alta along Gajiram to Monguno Road, killing seven soldiers and members of Civilian-JTF.

A statement issued by Zulum’s spokesman, Malam Isa Gusau, on Sunday, November 22, said the governor traveled to Baga, spent a day supervising the distribution of food and other relief to thousands of residents and returned to Maiduguri safely with no hitch whatsoever.

“For the record, we write to quickly clarify that contrary to a “breaking news” by an online news medium, Governor Babagana Umara Zulum was neither attacked nor was any component of his convoy attacked by anyone," the statement says.

"The governor was actually in Baga from Saturday to Sunday, during which he supervised the distribution of food and cash support to 5,000 residents and he assessed major reconstruction and resettlement efforts with no hitch whatsoever,"

"While we continually accord respect to all media organizations as supportive partners, we importantly clarify that we have no knowledge of the breaking news” in question. As members of the public can testify, it is the culture and principle of Professor Zulum to say things as they are, and in this case, it is what it is - no attack whatsoever

"Any media organization that wants further clarification may wish to contact the Nigerian military. Meanwhile, Governor Zulum appreciates all well wishers, and he gratefully commends armed forces and civilian volunteers for the relentless efforts to fully regain lasting peace in Borno State.” the statement added.

Somebody should beg Babagana Zulum to stop forming hero and cherish this one life he has to live.

He should learn to delegate some of these trips to the Commissioner of Police and head of the Army JTF in his state since they've always claimed to have defeated Boko Haram.
