The Borno State Government has denied reports of attack on the convoy of Governor Babagana Zulum by Boko Haram insurgents.
Reacting to a story published online, Malam Isa Gusau, the spokesperson to the Governor, in a statement on Sunday said the report was false.
“For the record, we write to quickly clarify that contrary to a “breaking news” by an online news medium, Governor Babagana Umara Zulum was neither attacked nor was any component of his convoy attacked by anyone.
“The governor was actually in Baga from Saturday to Sunday, during which he supervised the distribution of food and cash support to 5,000 residents and he assessed major reconstruction and resettlement efforts with no hitch whatsoever.
“While we continually accord respect to all media organizations as supportive partners, we importantly clarify that we have no knowledge of the ‘breaking news’ in question,” Gusau said.
