The State Government of Adamawa, on Sunday, has declared a state of emergency in the state.
Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri noted that the regulation takes effect immediately.
In a statement signed by the chief secretary to the governor, Humwashi Wonosikou, the curfew is to control the destructive violence of hoodlums and their attacks on the residents of the state capital.
“The curfew followed the dangerous dimension the activities of hoodlums had assumed across the state capital as they attacked people with matches and broke into business premises, carting away property,” the governor said.
He stated further, “With the curfew imposed, there will be no movement throughout the state.”
Rt. Hon. Fintiri restated that while the curfew is being effected, only officials on essential duties are permitted to move around and that they must also do so when they carry their valid means of identification (official I.D. Cards).
He, therefore, implores all citizens to abide by the order, stressing that any violator will be arrested and sanctioned accordingly.
