Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that President Muhammadu Buhari issued a stern warning to Boko Haram insurgents following the attack on Governor Zulum's convoy.
The president on Saturday, September 26, condemned the attack which led to the death of security men and some operatives of a civilian joint task force.
The president in a statement signed by his special assistant on media and publicity, Garba Shehu, described the attack, which occurred on the Maiduguri-Baga route, as an orchestrated sabotage against the long-planned return of displaced persons to their local communities.
