The Governor of Adamawa State, Ahmadu Fintiri, has declared a 24-hour curfew in the State.
In a statement issued by the Governor’s Spokesperson, Humwashi Wonosikou, the curfew is a result of the activities of hoodlums, who attack people with machetes, break into business premises and homes to cart away property.
“The Governor of Adamawa State, Rt Hon Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri, has declared a 24-hour curfew on the State, effective immediately 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 and homes, 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.
