Soldiers fighting the counter-insurgency war in the North-East have embarked on repairs of roads and bridges destroyed by Boko Haram terrorists.
Most of the affected roads located in Maiduguri, Bama (Borno State) and Yola (Adamawa State) have been reconstructed to make movement easier for motorists and other road users.
A visit to the area revealed the work was being done by the soldiers from the Nigerian Army Corps of Engineers (NACE), on all the areas that had improvised explosive devises (IEDs) planted by the terrorists. They dug out the explosives thus making the roads safer.
The bridge at Firigi village located near Konduga, hitherto blown up by the terrorists to prevent security operatives from accessing the route has been reconstructed.
Investigations showed that aside from fighting the anti-terror war, soldiers engaged in the operations take out time to carry out community social responsibility programmes and other humanitarian programmes to better the lives of host communities.
