The deadly Boko Haram terrorist group on Friday killed 15 persons in an attack on Governor Babagana Zulum’s convoy.
The governor’s convoy was attacked by the sect along Monguno and Baga areas of the Borno State.
The governor had reportedly heading to Baga to prepare for the planned return of internally displaced persons from Maiduguri to the camps in Baga.
According to reports, those who were killed are security operatives (8 policemen, 3 soldiers, 4 civilian JTF).
The terrorist group recently killed the Commander of the 25 Task Force Brigade of Operation Lafiya Dole, Col. DC Bako, in an ambush.
Clearly, Baga cannot be considered safe for the IDPs to return back to.
