A security source said the attack left mainly security personnel comprising eight policemen, three soldiers and four Civilian Joint Task Force operatives dead.

According to a report by The PUNCH, the death toll from Boko Haram attack on the convoy of Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum, has risen to 30, security sources said Saturday.

Two sources told AFP the number of fatalities from the attack Friday had doubled as more bodies were found and now included 12 policemen, five soldiers, four members of a government-backed militia, and nine civilians.

“The tally has increased to 30 as many bodies were picked in the surrounding areas after the attack,” one of the sources said, adding that “many people were injured”.

The PUNCH had reported that an ambush on the convoy of the Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum, on Friday left about 15 persons dead.

The governor’s convoy was said to have been attacked between Monguno and Baga areas of the state.

A security source said the attack left mainly security personnel comprising eight policemen, three soldiers and four Civilian Joint Task Force operatives dead.

A source at the Borno State Government House in Maiduguri also told our correspondent that the governor had left Maiduguri for Baga to prepare for the planned return of internally displaced persons from Maiduguri to the camps in Baga.

The governor was said to have left Maiduguri with a retinue of armed soldiers, police officers and Civilian-JTF personnel.

A senior police officer, who spoke on condition of anonymity, stated that he was told eight persons were killed, including security personnel and civilians.

Friday’s incident is the second attack on the governor’s convoy in recent times around Baga.

The govt can use the presidential plane fro marriage but cannot use all the billions to secure life and properties of her citizens. I hope the idiots who use sentiments to vote buhari for 2nd term have realized their mistakes...no one does any good in 2nd term in office! None!

This is what happens to anyone who opposes Buhari boys. Meanwhile Buhari is looking for them to rehabilitate his boys.
