“The insurgents opened fire on the convoy from both sides of the road, killing one policeman instantly while the other died later due to too much bleeding following bullet wounds. As a matter of fact, we left Maiduguri late, around 6.00 pm.”

Governor Buni was absent in the convoy when the incident happened on their way back to Damaturu the state capital.

He was said to have travelled to Abuja for an official function.
