Nigerian Military Clears Terrorists on Maiduguri-Damaturu Road
Our attention has been drawn to rumours that the Nigerian Army has closed Maiduguri-Damaturu road. This is not true.
What is happening is an ongoing clearance and snap checks operations in the general area required to clear suspected Boko Haram terrorists along that road. The clearance operation is ultimately for the safety and security of motorists and other road users.
Members of the public are please advised to cooperate and bear with the troops as they carry out these duties.
