Zulum reportedly visited Bayo, Kwaya Kusar, Askira Uba and Gwoza as part of his “familiarity and need assessment tour” of the 27 LGAs in the state.
According to the source, “Luckily the governor, his commissioners and other vehicle in the convoy escaped unhurt but the last vehicle which is an army gun truck was pelted with bullets,” the source said.
“Immediately after they fired at us, our men in collaboration with the armed personnel from the Federal Special Anti Robbery Squad(FSARS), quickly retaliated and thwarted the ambush.”
Konduga, an area near Sambisa forest, has come under many attacks from the faction of Boko Haram in recent times.
Before Thursday’s attack, Zulum had visited Bayo where he directed the enrollment of 112 members of the civilian joint task force and a monthly payment roll, starting from next month.
He also directed the provision of furniture to the local government secretariat and immediate return of staffs to their offices.
He had also also visited Government Day Secondary School, Biryel, where he ordered immediate restoration of water that had been cut off
