Report has it the convoy was attacked close to Funtua in Katsina, which borders Zamfara State.
Efforts to reach an aide to the governor proved abortive as all calls and messages sent to his phone were not responded to.
The attack is coming amidst a battle the sitting governor is having with the immediate past administration in his state.
Governor Matawalle has set up a committee headed by the past deputy governor, Mallam Ibrahim Wakalla, to investigate the immediate past administration.
