Terrible looking Boko Haram terrorists attacked the convoy of former governor of Borno state Ali Modu Sheriff, killing five including three gentle policemen.
Security sources revealed to SaharaReporters that the blood sucking, evil terrorists opened unending rain of bullet fire on the convoy carrying the family of a former governor of Borno State, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff.
The convoy was attacked as the politician’s family travelled from Abuja to Maiduguri to attend the three-day prayer of Sheriff’s late father, Alhaji Galadima Modu, who died following a fire incidence at his residence in Maiduguri on Thursday.
Intel gathered that five persons including three policemen were killed during the attack.
A source said,
“Boko Haram launched an attack on the convoy carrying the family of Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, former governor of Borno State, from Abuja to Maiduguri to attend the burial of his late father.
“Three policemen, a driver and one member of his family were killed and several others were injured in the attack.
“The terrorists also went away with the riffles of the dead officers and some cars in the convoy,”
The two policemen who lost their lives in the attack are Corporal Mustapha Inusa and Corporal Abubakar Idris.
This barbaric attack comes just days after the Nigerian Defence Headquarters disclosed that Abubakar Shekau, leader of the Boko Haram sect, may soon surrender. But the deadly terrorists have proven Buratai wrong.
Ali Modu Sheriff has been accused in the past by some people of being responsible for the emergence of Boko Haram in Borno State where he was once governor.
