Boko Haram: Military to lift Maiduguri curfew on Monday – Spokesperson

The 7 Division of the Nigerian Army in Maiduguri said on Sunday that the 24-hour curfew imposed on Maiduguri would be lifted on Monday morning.

Sani Usman, the spokesperson of the division, stated this in a statement in Maiduguri.

Mr. Usman, a colonel, said residents of Maiduguri were free to go about their business as from 6 a.m. on Monday.

“Please be informed that the curfew will last till 6 a.m. tomorrow morning.

“Therefore, people can go about their legitimate businesses as from 6 a.m. in the morning,” it said.

PREIUM TIMES had reported how the curfew was imposed after suspected Boko Haram members tried to invade the Borno capital. Scores of people including soldiers and insurgents are believed to have been killed as the military repelled the attack.

Mr. Usman was silent on the casualty of the Maiduguri attack as well as others in neighbouring Monguno and Konduga.

    God must punish Buhari for the insurgency that he foisted on the good people of the North East. He is blood thirsty and evil. The soul of the dead in the hands of his Boko Haram will continue to hunt him for the rest of his miserable years on earth. His ambition for political power is an illusion. It is only a dream and may he not get there, in Jesus Name, Amen.

    The army is a war and cowards like Buhari are wrongly criticizing its actions from their safe remote campaign headquarters to scrap a few more votes. There is nothing power-junkies won’t do for a win. Now he’ll blame the military for not immediately releasing the number of casualties – meanwhile they have been fighting off BH. Now we wonder whet the priority is.

    I hope GEJ seizes on this military triumph the same way GMB has seized on every one of their failures over the past few months. But he won’t because he is a bigger man and knows he must win the campaign based on his strength as a politician, and not take credit for military in a conflict the way GMB has played on their failures to court votes. There is finally good news in the fight against Boko Haram — let’s see which way the APC propaganda machine spins it this time.

  • Emmanuel Gbadamosi

    Buhari’s whole political program is going to crumble seeing that Nigerian forces under the command of GEJ are now repelling the attacks of Boko Haram. What kind of slander will he have to resort to now? Maybe that is why attacks against the PDP’s campaign meetings have started to intensify all of a sudden.

    All my prayers are sent to our Northern brothers and sisters who suffer so much because of those Boko Haram fanatics, and to our soldiers who fight them. I remain confident that with this recent victory and with the help of the regional coalition and the U.S. We will be able to fight off this threat. I also urge people not to succumb to the divisive APC propaganda saying that our President isn’t taking any actions against these terrorists.
