The 7 Division Nigerian Army has debunked reportcircultion on social media of a purported travel time restriction on travellers to Maiduguri.
The Deputy Director of Army Public Relations (DDAPR), Col. Kingsley Samuel in a statement on Tuesday, said the reported directive is completely false and clearly a mischief intended to misinform, cause disaffection and breach the peace.
Samuel said at no time was any such statement issued by anyone on any travel time restriction.
“Once more for the avoidance of doubt the general public is please informed that there is no travel time restriction of any kind emanating from 7 Division or signed by anyone. The good people of Borno and other law abiding visitors are enjoined to go about their lawful businesses and continue to avail the security agencies with timely information to counter insurgency and other sundry crime,”
