The Governor of Adamawa State, Rt Hon Ahmadu Fintiri has declared a 24-hour curfew on the North East Nigeria state, effective from Sunday 30th July, 2023.
Governor Fintiri said 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.
With the curfew imposed, there will be no movement throughout the state.
Rt. Hon. Fintiri said only those on essential duties with valid identification would be permitted to move around during the period of the curfew.
The Governor is appealing to citizens and residents of the state to comply with the directive, adding that any person found contravening the order would be arrested and made to face the wrath of the law.
Humwashi Wonosikou, the Chief Press Secretary who signed a statement, says the Government is ready to arrest anyone breaking the law.
