Governor of Borno State, Babagana Zulum has criticized the Nigerian army following an attack on his convoy in Baga on Wednesday night.
The governor and his entourage were at Baga town, one of the areas difficult to reach for humanitarian activities, when his convoy was ambushed by the terrorist group.

Zulum who confronted the Commanding Officer in Mile 4, expressed his disappointment at the inability of the military to rid Baga and its environs of insurgents.

He further questioned the authenticity of the army’s position that Boko Haram insurgents have been neutralised in the state, Channels Tv reports.
“The army has been here for over one year now, there are 1,181 soldiers here; if you cannot take over Baga which is less than 5 km from your base, then we should forget about Baga.
“I will inform the Chief of Army Staff to redeploy the men to other places that they can be useful,” Zulum said.

“You said there is no Boko Haram here, then who attacked us,” Zulum questioned.


  1. Buratai should come out explain this because he recently said security has improved more than the way it be in 5 years. Technical defeat, haba.

  2. When 5 Aid workers were slaughtered two weeks ago, you think it was a fluke. The army are afraid of the terrorists because over half of the army are Boko Haram and their sympatisers. It is impossible to eliminate Boko Haram with the kind of service chiefs we have now and their commanders

  3. Imagine…
    Now you see what people at low levels are facing as they don’t have peace of mind
    Let’s stamp.out this virus called Boko Haram
