Adamawa relaxes curfew on troubled Lamurde LGA communities



Adamawa State Government has relaxed the 24-hour curfew it imposed on the troubled communities of Lamurde Local Government Area.

Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri had imposed a 24-hour curfew on, Tingno Dutse, Tito, Sabon Layi and Bagashi villages following the eruption of violence in the areas.

A statement by the governor’s press secretary, Humwashi Wonosikou said the four communities are to now observe a dusk to dawn curfew (from 6pm to 6am) until further notice.

Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri has also banned operation of motorcycles within the four areas earlier mentioned, warning that anyone found sabotaging government’s effort at restoring peace in the affected areas would have himself to blame, as Security Agencies have been directed to ensure strict compliance with the orders.

He said government will continue to explore all means possible towards achieving peace in the local government area and other hot spots in the state.

The Governor appealed to residents to exercise patience and remain calm, as government will do its best to uncover the cause of the crisis, and deal with culprits, in accordance with the law.
