The Federal Government will formally re-open two major roads in Borno on Sunday following the defeat of Boko Haram in most parts of the north-east by the Nigerian military.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, said this in a statement issued in Abuja.

The roads are the Maiduguri-Gubio-Damasak and the Maiduguri-Mungono-Baga.

Mr. Mohammed said he and the Minister of Defence, Mansir Dan-Ali, Service Chiefs, Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno State and other dignitaries will grace the occasion.

He said the two major roads, which were earlier closed due to the activities of the insurgents in the area, are of strategic importance to the economy of the Lake Chad Region.

The minister said that the dignitaries will later have lunch with the gallant troops.
