The Theatre Command of Operation Lafiya Dole operating in the North East of Nigeria is set to reopen some major roads in Borno after over three years.
The roads to be opened are Konduga – Bama, Bama – Banki and Bama – Gwoza roads.
The theatre command is expected to officially open the road first week of March.
The roads to be reopened are among the major and most strategic roads in Borno, linking the state to Adamawa and other borders markets and towns of the state.
Throughout the period of closure, motorists take several hours and days to access the local governments via Damboa.
With this development, almost all major roads in the state are reopened.
Two years ago, in July 2016, the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. TY Buratai who was with his men on the front lines of the war against Boko Haram just last Saturday, re-opened the Maiduguri – Dikwa – Gomboru road.
Other roads reopened after several months and years of closure are Maiduguri – Damboa road and Maiduguri – Baga road.
