Adamawa State officials have eased the 24-hour curfew imposed across the 21 Local Government Areas of the state following the activities of hoodlums on Sunday that broke into Government warehouses carting away food and non-food items.
This was contained in a press release by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Humwashi Wonosikou and made available to newsmen in Yola, the state capital.
The relaxation of the curfew follows a meeting in the early hours of Monday morning between security chiefs and Government officials led by the Deputy Governor, Prof Kaletapwa George Farauta.
Addressing the Press shortly after the meeting, the Deputy Governor announced that the curfew has been reviewed from 6pm to 6am and will be reviewed hourly.
According to the statement, authorities will maintain an increased security presence to ensure compliance to Government’s directive and that criminals do not disrupt the peace of the State.
While urging Parents to send their children and wards to school as well as the reopening of businesses premises, she warned hoodlums and the public to abide by the curfew and remain courteous and cooperative if approached and questioned by security personnel.
Professor Farauta noted that Government will not fold its arms and allow miscreants disrupt the peace of the State.
