Isa Gusau, spokesman to Babagana Zulum, governor of Borno, says the governor’s convoy was not involved in an accident which occurred in the state earlier on Tuesday.

The accident claimed the lives of Mustapha Muhammad, Mai Kanuribe of Lagos, and two others along Maiduguri-Mafa road.

According to Gusau, the traditional ruler had travelled to Mafa to show his support for Zulum’s administration and the All Progressives Congress (APC), adding that when the accident occurred, the governor was still in Mafa.

“The Mai had, no doubt, travelled to Mafa and the trip was in solidarity with Governor Zulum’s administration and the APC. However, the Mai left Mafa on his way back to Maiduguri, while the Governor was still in Mafa,” the statement reads.


“The Governor, alongside Senator Kashim Shettima, and some leaders, came across the accident on the way back from Mafa and as expected, the governor and those accompanying him, followed the bodies of the Mai and others to their families in Maiduguri, empathised with the bereaved families and took part in funerals.

“This clarification does not in any way aim to disown the late Mai, but to put the record as it is.

“Governor Zulum deeply recognises the fact that the late Mai Kanuribe, a leader with open passion for the progress of Borno and its people, undertook his last journey to Mafa, in honour of the Zulum administration and the APC.”
