Governor Zulum confirmed the attack during his visit to the State Specialist Hospital, and the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital, both in Maiduguri.

Also, the governor was told that some of the victims had sustained various degrees of injuries and were being treated. Consequently, Zulum directed that the state ministry of health will foot the bills.

The Borno State Governor Babagana Zulum was at the two hospitals today to see citizens who were injured by insurgents.

During the visit, the governor stated thus:

“Indeed it is a very sad moment for the people and government of Borno state, about 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. We experienced a similar incident exactly one year ago. The solution is to deploy an appropriate form of technology, which will have to work on. I share the pains of all those affected but we are not just visiting hospitals, we do so much behind the scene in our combined responses to the Boko Haram insurgency and we will keep making these and more efforts”.

“I am optimistic that the insurgents will not take over Marte again” Zulum said.
