Sequel to the directive by the Chief of Army Staff, Major General Tukur Yusufu Buratai, to troops in the 3 and 7 Divisions of the Nigerian Army, on the need to be more proactive in the fight against terrorism and insurgency, in compliance with the directive, additional roads have been cleared by troops for use by commuters.

Acting Director Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, announced this yesterday in a statement.

“The road linking Biu – Sabon Gari – Damboa in Borno State is now cleared of mines and insurgents for public usage. The public are encouraged to use the road as adequate security measures have been put in place for their safety. Similarly, efforts are on for the clearance and reopening of other roads in Borno and Yobe states,” he added.
