The Northern Gover­nors Forum has con­demned Wednesday’s attack on the convoy of Gov. Babagana Zulum of Bor­no, describing the act as callous and reprehensible.

The Chairman of the fo­rum and governor of Plateau, Simon Lalong, made the con­demnation in a statement by his Director of Press and Pub­lic Affairs, Dr Makut Macham.

He said the attack on the governor’s convoy on his way to Baga in Kukawa Local Gov­ernment Area of the state was an act to frustrate his efforts in ensuring the well-being of the vulnerable in the state.

The governor expressed concern that Zulum was at­tacked while on the way to dis­tribute palliatives to Internally Displaced Persons for the Sal­lah celebration.

Also, the Minority Caucus of the House of Representa­tives has expressed concern over the attack on Governor Zulum by Boko Haram in­surgents, saying that the sad incident has again reinforced the urgent need to review the nation’s security architecture.

Ndudi Elumelu, Minority Leader of the House of Rep­resentatives, in a statement on Friday urged the presidency to implement the recent res­olution of both chambers of the National Assembly ask­ing President Muhammadu Buhari to sack his Service Chiefs.

Lalong said the incident was a desperate attempt by crimi­nal elements to sabotage Zu­lum’s efforts toward reducing the sufferings of IDPs who had been traumatised by terrorists.

“This regrettable attack shows the desperation by en­emies of peace and humanity at large to jeopardise all efforts towards making life easier for victims of violence in the state over the years.
