The governor of Borno, Babagana Zulum charged soldiers of abandoning their duties and not protecting the citizens of the state at the mercy of Boko Haram insurgents.
Speaking when he visited Auno, a town 20 kilometers from Maiduguri, Borno state capital, the governor alleged that soldiers meant to secure the community desert the people around 5 pm on a daily basis.
Not less than 30 persons were killed when Boko Haram insurgents attacked travelers in Auno on Sunday night.
Addressing Sunday Igbinomwanhia, garris on commander of Operation Lafiya Dole, at the scene of the incident on Monday, Governor Babagana Zulum expressed concern that the army has not established a military base in Auno.
“We have to be brutal in telling the truth. I am pushed to the wall to say the truth. Since I was inaugurated as governor of Borno state, Boko Haram has attacked Auno six times. Another thing is that the military has withdrawn from Auno town,” he said raising his voice.
