Governor of Borno State, Babagana Umara Zulum, earlier today (Monday), offered to give 12 young girls a lift back to Monguno after sighting them by the road side.

When asked what they had come to do at the place, the young girls said they were fetching firewood. The firewood reportedly serves as a source of energy to local residents whose livelihoods have been denied as a result of decade long insurgency.
