Col. Nwachukwu said ” What is happening is an ongoing clearance and snap checks operations in the general area required to clear suspected Boko Haram terrorists along that road.”
“The clearance operation is ultimately for the safety and security of motorists and other road users.”, the statement added.
The Army therefore, advised members of the public to please  cooperate and bear with the troops as they carry out these duties.
