Soldiers Shoot at Gov. Shettima’s Convoy

The convoy of Borno State Governor Kashim Shettima was shot at by soldiers in Maiduguri as it approached military garrison near the airport.

The governor’s protocol office is being held accountable for the incident, as they reportedly failed to inform military authorities about the governor’s intention to visit the military facilities.

Shettima was on his way to visit soldiers, who were wounded in the simultaneous Boko Haram attacks on Maiduguri, Monguno and Kodunga when the incident occurred on Monday. The state Commissioner for Information, Mohammed Bulama, described the gunshots as “friendly.”
