The troubled town of Maiduguri, the capital of Nigeria Northeast state Borno was shutdown for the celebration of the Nigerian Army Day.
Our reporter can report that most of the important route in the town that the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Kenneth Minimah was expected to pass through to the Government House where he paid a courtesy visit on the governor, the road to the Shehu’s palace where he also paid a courtesy call on the monarch, the road leading to the cemetery where he laid a wreath on dead soldiers and some military barracks where the activities of the day were held were closed.
Most of the vehicles were diverted from the major roads as earlier as 7am even as the COAS and his team took the journey on the roads as late as 10am.The closure of the roads made it difficult for many residents of the town for the second time in a week to get to their offices and business areas.
