A statement issued on Sunday by Mr Segun Adeyemi, who is an aide to the Minister of Information and Culture, Mr Lai Mohammed, noted that this development is responsible for the re-opening of two major roads in Borno State today.
The roads to be opened by the government are the Maiduguri-Gubio-Damasak road and the Maiduguri-Mungono-Baga road.
To witness the ceremony are Minister of Information and Culture, Mr Lai Mohammed, and his counterpart in the Ministry of Defence, Mr Mansir Dan-Ali; Service Chiefs, Governor Kashim Shetimma of Borno State.
Dignitaries will later have lunch with the gallant troops who crushed the insurgency, the statement said.
The two major roads 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.
