Death Toll In Boko Haram’s Attack On Zulum’s Convoy Rises To 30

Zulum-1

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

His convoy was reportedly attacked between Monguno and Baga areas of the state.

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