The curfew in Yola North, Yola South, Girei, and Numan Local Government Areas (LGAs) has been relaxed by the Adamawa State Government.
According to a statement released by the governor’s chief press secretary, Humwashi Wonosikou, the curfew in the four impacted Local Councils will now be in effect from midnight to 6 a.m. daily.
The Governor ordered the curfew on Sunday after thugs ransacked government storage facilities.
The Governor has declared that “people are free to move around from 6 a.m. to midnight.” However, until further notice, the hours of operation for the rickshaws (also called Keke Napep) would be confined to 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.
The dialogue must go on, and those citizens who persist in exploiting social media to instigate illegal behaviour must be warned and urged to desist or face the consequences.
Security agents will continue to set up checkpoints and perform stop-and-frisk operations, he said, while encouraging civilians to heed government directives to keep Law and Order.
The inhabitants of the affected areas were asked by Governor Fintiri to help keep the peace and restore law and order.
