Suspected Boko Haram terrorists attacked the convoy of the Borno State Governor, Babagana Umara Zulum along Monguno- Maiduguri axis on Sunday.

This is coming barely 72hours after the suspected Boko Haram terrorists attacked the same Governor's convoy and his officials on their way to Baga from Monguno on Friday.

Monguno is in the northern Borno where activities of terrorists continued to put pressure on government forces that are trying to bring an end to the insurgency that is ravaging the northeast states of Borno, Adamawa and Yobe states.

Monguno is also a town that hosts thousands of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs).

The latest attack on the Governor's convoy recorded no death.

The convoy, according to some of the people who returned to Maiduguri on Sunday evening from the tour, was shot at by suspected Boko Haram terrorists.

One of them said, “There was no death recorded this time around except some minor injuries.

“The windscreen of some vehicles was shattered, some vehicles had their tyres busted by gunshots, including the Government House Press Crew bus.

“The military gun truck was also shot at, and a soldier had his shoulder scalded with a gunshot.”

On Friday there was an ambush on governor Zulum's convoy which led to the death of up to 15 persons.

A security source said the attack left mainly security personnel comprising eight police officers, three soldiers and four Civilian Joint Task Force operatives dead.
