No More Special Curfew Passes In Borno Says Military


By Musdapha Ilo, Maiduguri

The Nigerian Army on Wednesday revoked all curfew passes issued to some residents of Maiduguri.



    The military authorities also barred motorists from plying the streets of the city between 7pm and 6am, insisting that the only vehicles allowed to move are ambulances and fire fighting trucks on duty.

    By this action, all persons that were hitherto allowed on the roads during curfew hours like medical practitioners, security officers and journalists may have been barred from moving between these hours.

    The new directive was communicated in a statement issued by the deputy director, Army Public Relations, 7 Division Nigerian Army Maiduguri, Tukur Gusau, a colonel.

    The statement read in part: “The 7 Division Nigerian Army Maiduguri wish to draw the attention of
    residents of Maiduguri that all curfew passes previously issued are now revoked.
