GSM Service Restored In Borno

Finally, after nearly a two month ban, telecommunication services have been restored in Borno State.



    The defence headquarters spokesperson, Chris Olukolade, told Reuters that the telephone services were restored “in reaction to the improved security situation and to relax the environment and ease tensions,”

    GSM services were suspended in Adamawa Borno and Yobe states in May following the declaration of a state of emergency there, but the other two states got their no service ban lifted in the last seven days.

    While restoring network service in Adamawa State Friday last week, the defense headquarters said that as soon as the security situation in the other states improve, network service would be restored.

    Telecom services were also restored in Yobe State on Thursday.
