Following the attack on the convoy of Borno State governor, Babagana Umara Zulum by Boko Haram, the governor has stated that the ultimate wish of the terrorist sect is to take over the state.

Scores of operatives attached to his convoy lost their lives in the bloody attack by the insurgent.

In a statement released by his spokesperson Isa Gusau, Governor Zulum urged all stakeholders to remain committed in their unrelenting effort in bringing about peace in the state. He also prayed for the repose of souls of the late security operatives who died in the line of duty.

This is not the first time the governor’s convoy has been attacked by the dreaded Islamic sect.

The statement read;

“Governor Babagana Umara Zulum is saddened by this unfortunate carnage. He shares the grief of families of these 11 priceless heroes to whom Borno shall remain grateful.

“The governor prays for the repose of their souls and urges all stakeholders to remain committed to ongoing peace building efforts.

“Zulum is of the opinion that we must continue to keep hope alive even in the face of tribulations, and believe that with sustained efforts and prayers, Borno will eventually regain peace.

“The situation facing us is a tough one but we must choose between doing something which gives us some hope and doing nothing which will leave us more vulnerable to Boko Haram’s ultimate wish to take over Borno and bring it under their sovereign brutal administration.
