President Buhari orders removal of military checkpoints nationwide

I don't know if I should say am happy with such news because I fear it will only leave the highways free to kidnappers and highway robbers to roam and dish out all manners of evil act..

The News that President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday ordered the removal of all military checkpoints set up in the wake of Boko Haram activities across the country came via the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Defence, Aliyu Ismaila, he disclosed this to State House correspondents after a meeting Buhari had with service chiefs at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

“The President had instructed the Chief of Defence Staff to get the Chief of Army Staff and Inspector-General of Police to  remove all the military men along the roads across the country,” he said.

Ismaila said the meeting had further encouraged the security chiefs to do more in the war against insurgency because of the leadership being provided by the President who is a retired military officer.
