Members of the public have been assured that Damaturu-Biu Road in Nigeria’s North-East has been cleared of mines by a team of Nigerian Army Special Forces, Explosives Ordinance Devices with support from Nigeria Police and local vigilante.

“During the painstaking and thorough operation, 4 Improvised Explosives Devices (IEDs) planted by suspected Boko Haram terrorists were discovered and successfully detonated,” Acting Director Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, said this morning in a WhatsApp message to News Express.

“Commuters are encouraged to use the road as adequate security is being provided. The Nigerian Army wishes to further enjoin the public to be more security conscious and report any suspicious persons and movements to the security agents,” Col. Usman further said.
