Buratai Orders Evacuation Of Stranded Passengers On Maiduguri Road


Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai, a lieutenant general, on Friday, ordered his convoy to evacuate some passengers whose vehicle broke down along Maiduguri-Damboa road in Borno State.

News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Mr Buratai who was en route at the time, ensured that all passengers in the vehicle were evacuated into one of the vehicles in his convoy.

The action was borne out of the fact that the road was recently reopened by Nigerian Army after over a year of closure.
