A convoy of Borno state governor Babagana Zulum was attacked again on Sunday as they were leaving Baga.
Zulum left Baga at about 10 o’clock. After a two-day visit on the 30th to return home to the city’s natives after 21 months in exile.
A few kilometers from Baga, unknown assailants, believed to be Boko Haram, opened fire on the governor.
The column was taken out of Baga by the military, who responded with gunfire and opened the way for the governor.
The attack came just 48 hours after government officials in Borno state ambushed them on the same route as they were leaving for Baga to join the governor, who was flying in an Airforce car.
Reporters say sixteen people have died in the blast, but the whereabouts of an unidentified number has not yet been determined.
Members of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) working with the state government’s resettlement committee to clear shrubs from the road for clearer vision, also reportedly disappeared after the attack.
Zulum said in an interview in Baga before taking his leave, that he is saddened by the lives lost in the Friday attack, and pledged to support their bereaved families.
The governor has since arrived Maiduguri, the capital city after successfully performing the resettlement issue that took him to Baga
