How Governor Zulum, others crawled to escape death

The Special Adviser to Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno State on Media, Isa Gusau, has disclosed how his principal and other Security personnel with him crawled to safety to escape attack by Boko Haram Militants

It had been reported earlier that members of the sect on Wednesday attacked the convoy of the governor while he was on his way to some internally displaced persons camps in the area.

Gusau, while speaking in an interview on BBC Hausa Service on Thursday said the Governor and his team were in good condition.

He said, “I was not there physically. The governor was heading to Baga from Munguno because the soldiers told him they have liberated Baga from the control of Boko Haram.”

“But along the way, the insurgents opened fire on the governor’s convoy and everyone scampered for their lives”.

“They crawled for a distance on their knees. They sustained injuries. The Boko Haram insurgents were shooting,” he added.
