Written by thereachfm on November 4, 2019
President Muhammadu Buhari approved the extension of the exercise until January 31, 2020.
Nigeria had closed all land borders with neighbouring countries in October, following an earlier closure of its borders with its western neighbour, the Republic of Benin in August.
The memo was dated November 1, 2019, and addressed to the Sector Coordinators of the Joint Border Operation Drill.
The exercise is being conducted by the Customs in collaboration with operatives of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) and other security agencies.
