 Army denies Restricting Movement In Maiduguri.

The Nigerian Army on Wednesday dismissed as ‘false’, social media reports that it had imposed a restriction of movement in Maiduguri.

Deputy Director, Army Public Relations, 7 Division, Col. Kingsley Samuel, made the clarifications in a statement issued in Maiduguri.

Samuel said that the military did not enforce a restriction on travellers, adding that the report was mischievous and designed to cause a breach of peace in the state.

“The attention of the Nigerian Army, 7 Division, has been drawn to the circulation on social media of a purported travel time restrictions in Maiduguri.

“The statement is completely false and clearly a mischief intended to misinform, cause disaffection and a breach of peace. At no time was such a statement issued by anyone on travel time restrictions.
