The Nigerian Army on Wednesday said it has started construction of a road network from Alagarno to Sambisa.
Theatre Commander, Operation Lafiya Dole, Maj. Gen Lucky Irabor said the road will make it easier for troops to counter Boko Haram insurgents.
“We have embarked on roads construction within the Sambisa forest to open up the area and also ease our operations within the theatre.
“Construction of the roads will assist fighting troops in their effort to mop up the Boko Haram insurgents from their hideouts,” Irabor said.
Irabor said construction of roads was essential to reviving the economic development of the North-East.
“I also urge the general public to continue to support the military in the North-East through provision of useful information and not to follow the ways of some media outfits who are bent on bringing down the military,” the commander said
