Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno State says he will be going back to Gamboru Ngala in a non-bullet vehicle next week despite the recent attack on his convoy by members of Boko Haram.
Mr. Shettima said this when he fielded questions from State House correspondents at the end of an expanded security meeting, which was presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Tuesday.
On February 12, the terrorists attacked the convoy of the governor, who was returning to Maiduguri, the state capital, after he attended a political rally at Gamboru Ngala.
The terrorists had laid an ambush on the governor’s convoy where they opened fire on the rear vehicles in the convoy, killing three persons while a soldier sustained injuries.
Mr Shettima, however, stated that he was ready to pay the supreme price by returning to Gamboru Ngala, and he would be using ordinary cars on the fateful day.
