Borno governor, Prof. Zulum, points accusing finger at military, says attack on convoy complete sabotage

By Ndahi Marama – Maiduguri -The Borno state Governor, Prof. Babagana Zulum has pointed an accusing finger on the Military in Baga Town where his convoy was attacked, saying that the attack on his convoy by unknown gunmen was complete sabotage in the fight against insurgency in the Northeast Addressing Journalists, the governor insisted that, the presence of troops in Baga in the last two years is a shame and unacceptable.

The governor who was in the volatile town of Baga on an assessment visit to the town to see how people of the town will return back to their town had to whisk away into the Federal Anti Robbery Squad ( FSARS) armoured carrier vehicles and sneak out of the town. Speaking on the Baga attack on his convoy while in Monguno after the attack, Governor Zulum said ” as far as I am concern, what happened in Baga is complete sabotage by the military.

There is no Boko Haram in Baga. “I wondered, we have over 1181 soldiers in Baga, 72 officers, 107 soldiers, 400 soldiers in mile 4 and 1900 soldiers in Monguno, I see no reason why only 5 Boko Haram will stop them from occupying Baga town.”, Governor zulum added.

There is a need to look into the command structure. ” We have over 80,000 IDPs in Monguno, they cannot continue to depend on International Non-Governmental Organizations (INGO) and others for food, we have to create opportunity for them to go back to their communities and continue with their business and farming activities, after Sallah, we are going to allow people to go back to kukawa and we will give time to the military, if they will not clear Baga, we will mobilize our hunters, CJTF, and Vigilantes to recapture Baga, we cannot continue like this, people have to take their destiny in their hands.”, he added.
