The Terrorist attack On The Governor of Borno State Has Raised These Questions That Needs An Urgent Answer

Punch Newspaper reported that eight policemen, three soldiers, and four members of a government-backed militia were killed in the attack on vehicles carrying Borno governor Babagana Umara Zulum near the town of Baga on the shores of Lake Chad.


The insurgents opened fire with machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades as the convoy was passing through a village close to the headquarters of the Multinational Joint Task Force, a military coalition of troops from Nigeria, Niger, Chad and Cameroon. 

For the second time in two months, the convoy of the Governor of Borno State, Professor Zulum has been attacked. Coincidence?

From the description of the ugly incident, it clearly shows that the attack was a well planned one. 


What has changed after the last attack on the Governor's convoy?

Who is providing the Terrorist with Zulum's movement schedules?

Second attempts? The Governor must be doing something that is troubling the reign of the terrorist. The multiple attacks show the Governor's strategy is a win against these terrorists. 

These are not coincidences but planned. 

Will the Federal Government join forces with the Governor to fish out the inside mole and to continue the good fight against the terrorist using Zulum's strategy?

All these questions and more needs a quick answer. Not in words but in action.

Punch Newspaper also reports that the crisis in the region has been a pain for the people for over a decade. According to the report, the  terrorist group maintains most of its camps on islands in Lake Chad and the region is known as a bastion for the terrorist.

The decade-long insurgency in northeast Nigeria has killed 36,000 people and forced over 2 million from their homes.

Most of the displaced have been housed into squalid camps where they depend on food handouts from international charities.


Last week Zulum said feeding the displaced was not financially sustainable, insisting the only option was for them to return and rebuild their homes and live a “dignified” life.
Zulum was on an assessment tour of Baga in preparation for the return of thousands of residents displaced from the town by the terrorist in 2014 when he was attacked.

“The governor escaped unhurt but 15 security men on the convoy were killed in a fierce battle with the terrorists”
