BREAKING: President Buhari reacts to Boko Haram’s attack on Governor Zulum


President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned an ambush on the entourage of Governor Umar Babagana Zulum of Borno State, which led to the death of security men and operatives of Civilian-JTF.

The President described the attack by Boko Haram terrorists, on Maiduguri-Baga route, as an orchestrated sabotage against long planned return of displaced persons to their local communities.

President Buhari notes, with deep sympathy, the loss of lives of security men on the convoy, ahead of the return of Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, commiserating with their families and loved ones.

Buhari advised the government of Borno State to remain firm in their determination to restore normalcy to all communities liberated from Boko Haram terrorists.

President Buhari urges security and intelligence agencies to intensify efforts to check sabotage, sanitize the roads, venues and locations well in advance of returning IDPs, while working closely with local communities.

The President commended the gallantry of service personnel who repelled the deadly ambush, as well the sincere determination of Governor Zulum, who has been working with armed forces to end the menace of terrorists, rebuild homes and return IDPs to regular life.

  1. With all these onslaught, can Nigeria still boast of any atom of national sovereignty? By the way, who leaks the information about trips like this to the insurgents because ambush seems to be the enemies’ new attack tactics? Ambush cannot occur when there is no premonition by the enemies. What about their bullet proof vests? Come to think of it, how safe would those IDPs had been if they were successfully reurned with this incident? Why did the governor go with an aircraft while the so called convoy drove on land; a personality not moving with his convoy? My simpathy with the affected families but there is something suspicious about all these attacks. Let the govt tell the truth and stop sacrificing these compatriots.

  2. Why couldn’t there be dummy running before the actual convoy movement?, (2)why was there no air cover for the convoy movement to forestall tendency of any anticipated attack which should not have been over ruled ?. It’s quite clear that Nigerian Army is no formidable Army
