The Boko Haram terrorist group, on Thursday, around 9pm, attacked the convoy of Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno State.
The incident happened in Konduga area of the state while he was returning from Bama Local Government Area.
The governor had reportedly visited Bayo, Kwaya Kusar, Askira Uba and Gwoza.
An undisclosed security source who spoke to The Cable, said; “Luckily the governor, his commissioners and other vehicles in the convoy escaped unhurt but the last vehicle which is an army gun truck was pelted with bullets.
