The Nigerian Army has debunked reports in certain sections of the media that the road connecting Maiduguri and Monguno town in Borno State, has been closed.
The Army statement said contrary to some reports, the road is still open to motorists and other road users.
A statement on Monday by Col. Onyema Nwachukwu, Deputy Director Public Relations, Theatre Command Operation LAFIYA DOLE as made available to Naija News, said the road remains open and troops are on patrol to flush out the Boko Haram terrorists.
The statement reads:
“The attention of the Headquarters Theatre Command Operation LAFIYA DOLE has been drawn to the information making the rounds in the social media and some online blogs that the road connecting Maiduguri and Monguno town in Borno State, has been closed to motorists and other road users. This is untrue, as no such closure has been imposed by the Theatre Command.”
“Contrary to the insinuation, Maiduguri – Monguno road remains open to motorists and all law abiding citizens. Troops are dominating the road with aggressive patrols, while clearance operations to flush out Boko Haram terrorists are ongoing in Baga general area.”
