Maiduguri attack: Gov. Zulum visits victims

Injured persons in the Tuesday attack on some parts of Maiduguri are to receive free medical treatment, Gov. Babagana Zulum of Borno has directed.

Zulum gave the directive on Wednesday when he  visited the victims in Maiduguri Specialists Hospital and University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital.

He called for more measures, including the use of technology, in tackling security challenges.

“Indeed it is a very sad moment for the people and government of Borno, more than 60 persons were affected, among them, 10 have died.

“It was as a result of long distance shots fired by the insurgents. I believe this is a new trend we have to raise up and stop it. We experienced a similar incident in July 2020.

“The solution is to deploy an appropriate form of technology. I share the pains of all those affected,” Zulum said.

Meanwhile, hundreds of Maiduguri residents who fled their homes over the attacks are returning to their homes.

The insurgents fired several mortar bombs into Maiduguri from farmland in the outskirts of the town hitting some areas such as Gwange, Kaleri and Adam-Kolo on Tuesday evening.

Soldiers repelled the attack by suspected to be from Boko Haram insurgents, resulting in explosions from artillery shooting and assault rifles in Maiduguri.

The explosion created panic among the residents of Gwange, Layin Bori, Adam Kolo and Kaleri suburbs of Maiduguri, where residents reported casualties and injuries.
