Borno -  The Army has reported clearing more local roads of landmines planted by alleged Boko Haram terrorists.

Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, Acting Director Army Public Relations, said the road linking Biu–Sabon Gari – Damboa in Borno State is now cleared of mines and insurgents for public usage.

This is 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.

This past weekend, in compliance with the directive, announced the road linking the Borno and Yobe States had been cleared of landmine.

“Similarly, efforts are on for the clearance and reopening of other roads in Borno and Yobe States,” Usman said.
