Babagana Zulum, governor of Borno, has set up a panel to probe ACTED, an international non-governmental organisation (NGO) that allegedly organised a shooting training in the state.

The French NGO was said to have used toy guns and simulators during training exercises at a hotel in Maiduguri, the state capital.

The governor said the shooting incident resulted in the disturbance of peace in the area.

The panel is expected to “ascertain the nature and magnitude of the public nuisance and disturbance of public peace to the people in the general area of Imperial Guest House, Old GRA, Maiduguri.

The governor said his administration is not unmindful of its obligation to its citizens and is committed to restoring law and order in every part of the state.  

He said the government will not allow acts that are “inimical to public peace and detrimental to the peaceful co-existence of its citizens”.
