The curfew imposed on the four Councils of Yola North, Yola South, Girei, and Numan by Adamawa State Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri has been lifted.
Humwashi Wonosoiku, the governor’s chief press secretary, released a statement on his behalf on August 2, 2023, stating, “Under the new arrangement, the curfew will be observed from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily beginning on Wednesday, August 2, 2023, and continuing until further notice.”
Security personnel have been ordered to crack down on miscreants creating breaches of peace, and Governor Fintiri has issued a warning to those who would cause unrest that the administration will not hesitate to deal with anyone who breaks the law.
Despite attempts to address insecurity in the State, there are still bad eggs that are testing the will of the Government, the governor stated, lamenting the criminals’ desperation to cause mayhem in the State.
The Governor, expressing his gratitude for the State’s citizens’ and residents’ support and cooperation, encouraged them to go about their lawful activities with the assurance that the State government would take all necessary precautions to ensure their safety.
He promised that even after the curfew was revised, security forces would maintain checkpoints and closely monitor locals’ activities.
