“Luckily the governor, his commissioners and other vehicle in the convoy escaped unhurt but the last vehicle which is an army gun truck was pelted with bullets. Immediately after they fired at us, our men in collaboration with the armed personnel from the Federal Special Anti Robbery Squad(FSARS), quickly retaliated and thwarted the ambush.” the source said.

The attack on Zulum comes seven months after Kashim Shettima, Zulum’s successor was attacked by the terror group on his way to  Gamboru Ngala, still in Borno. 60 persons were reportedly killed in the incident while over 100 were kidnapped.
