The repeated attack and death threat on the life of the governor of Borno, Babagana Zulum, by insurgents have gotten the attention of Nigerians and commentators.
Just on Friday, September 25, the convoy of Governor Zulum was attacked by terrorists in the town of Baga.
The shootout by the Jihadists said to be loyal to the IS-affiliated Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) group led to the death of about 15 security operatives.
Reacting to this and other incidents, a former senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani, called on the governor to apply more caution in areas still dominated by the dreaded terrorists.
Moreover, condemning the attack on the convoy, Sani called on security agencies to do their utmost in protecting the governor at all times.
He sent his condolences to the bereaved families of the policemen who lost their lives in the attack.
"The attacks on the convoy of Governor Zulum by d Insurgents again is condemnable. The governor must be well protected.
"In view of this, he should exercise greater caution in areas still controlled by the terrorist group. My condolences to the families of d policemen lost."
Earlier, weeks after crying out for being shot at by gunmen on his way to visit Internally Displaced Persons with relief materials, Zulum was attacked again by terrorists near the town of Baga in Borno.
Zulum escaped death after his convoy was ambushed on Friday, September 25, by Jihadist insurgents loyal to the IS-affiliated Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) group.
With sophisticated weapons, the militants opened fire at the convoy closed to the headquarters of the Multinational Joint Task Force consisting of troops from Nigeria, Niger, Chad and Cameroon.
