Monguno, one the territories of Borno state captured by Boko Haram insurgents but recently liberated by the Nigerian troops, is now accessible to civilians, it was gathered on Wednesday in Maiduguri.
Most of the territories retrieved from the Boko Haram insurgency still largely remain inaccessible to civilians as the military keep watch over them even as residents that fled the towns in the wake of the capture are still afraid to relocate to their homelands as they are not sure what await them.
Many are still afraid that the insurgents may return to attack the places again.
But the case of Monguno seems to be different from the other towns which were held captive by the insurgents with the chairman of the local government area, Alhaji Ali Sheriff Galgal, being able to pay a visit to the town over the weekend.
It was gathered that Galgal paid a visit to Monguno town and environs liberated by Nigerian troops two weeks ago to assess the level of destructions that took place during the short reign of the Boko Haram insurgents.
One of those that visited the area with the chairman, who does not want his name in print, told our correspondent in Maiduguri on Wednesday that the trip by the chairman was made on Sunday,
He said on arrival in Monguno, the chairman visited those who were rescued from the insurgents by the troops who they were now feeding.
