Maiduguri enjoys free movement at Sallah
The Borno State Governor Kashim Shettima yesterday announced that there will be free movement during this year’s Sallah celebration and approved N10 million to Civilian Joint Task Force.
During a state broadcast after meeting with security chiefs in the state, Shettima said, “We have resolved not to restrict movement after security reports. We want to restore normalcy as we are experiencing peace, so there will be free movement during this year’s Sallah.”
Shettima recalled that in the last six years, civilians had been subjected to restriction as a result of insurgency activities but praised the effort of the military for weakening the insurgents not able to coordinate major attacks.
Shettima said, “There will be enhanced celebration. All our brothers and sisters should go to various praying grounds on time with praying mats and submit to security searching. Our security agents will mobilize their men so that we can have peace throughout the period.”
Shettima who praised the efforts of Civillian Joint Task Force, announced N10 million for them ahead of Sallh Celebration.
