The former presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, has spoken on the attack on the convoy of Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum by Boko Haram terrorists, in which several persons were feared dead and others injured.

Twelve policemen, 13 civilians and five soldiers were confirmed dead in the attack.

The incident had occurred around 2pm on Friday. The convoy was heading to Baga town ahead of the government’s plan to return Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) from Maiduguri to Baga.

The terrorists seized and carted away one armoured police car, one gun truck belonging to the military and six government vehicles.

Reacting to this, Atiku, in a tweet via his official Twitter handle on Saturday, said the attack is yet another reminder that Nigeria needs to adopt new strategies to deal with the menace of insurgency decisively.

He went on to sympathize with the families of the deceased and the people of Borno.

Atiku on the Boko Haram attack wrote: “The attack on Gov. Babagana Zulum in which over a dozen security operatives were killed between Monguno and Baga should be a source of concern not only because it is the second time such an attack is taking place in recent times, but because the Borno governor is not a soft target.”

“This attack is yet another reminder that we need to adopt new strategies to deal with the menace of insurgency decisively. I convey my condolences to the families of the deceased.”

“I solidarise with the government and people of Borno that Gov Zulum did not come to any harm.”
